Olivia Nutter, the daughter of Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, was assaulted during a high school track meet last week.

Lisa Nutter, Olivia's mother, tells NBC10 the 18-year-old was involved in an incident and is fine.

The mayor's daughter was walking towards a group of girls at a meet in East Mount Airy in Northwest Philadelphia, when one of them told her to move, according to police. Moments later, police say, Olivia Nutter was assaulted.

Philadelphia Police were called to the scene and the alleged assailant fled the area. Ciarra Ryan was arrested about an hour later.

Ryan, 18, was charged with simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. The motive in the assault is unknown.

It is unclear whether the mayor's daughter has a security detail.
