Excel High School in South Boston went into lockdown Friday as police arrested a mother and her 14-year-old daughter who tried to forcibly enter the school to confront a student who they claimed had spit on the daughter, according to Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden’s office.

Police responded to the school on G Street at about 1:30 p.m. Friday for a report of a school resource officer in trouble, the district attorney’s office said in a statement.

School officials informed police that the mother and daughter told them that another student had spit on the daughter, the statement said.
