Does not matter if you are HR or not I just need opinions ASAP.

Eta: I am the one sending this email.
I would like to lodge an incident report about another student called Jacinta who is in my N****** class. I understand that Jacinta had enrolment problems and was not able to attend the pre-rehearsal meeting today for N********. I asked her if she would be okay with a couple of annotations (literally from "healthy heart workshop" to "***** healthy heart workshop.", twice in her speech), and that I was concerned that we would go under time as myself and another group member had timed the presentation and it went severely under.
She became extremely upset and I said that I would do it if she is too upset to do it (as I was aware of enrolment problems) and due to the fact she had clearly stated to the group that she did not want to do her part of the presentation on Monday the . As Lolta (my tutor) can attest to this fact that she did infact present her part today. She stated before the presentation that she would be lodging a "age discrimination complaint" and to "watch myself" as "it is quite easy to do", I believe this to be highly threatening behaviour as well as this being five minutes before our presentation has made me very distressed. I have assisted Jacinta a lot for this presentation for her speech as she stated she did not understand the concept of the presentation, I wrote the speech as she stated she did not want to do it.
However she has contributed to this group independently and collaboratively with other group members in a variety areas (suggestions for the take home booklet, PowerPoint, speech) so it is not as if she was discriminated at all (which I can provide screen shots of this if needed). As additional information, my mother was also a mature age student. As I have not received an apology from her, I believe it is necessary for me to put this in writing as a documented incidence. I would like to make it very clear that I am not lodging a complaint as I am under the assumption she is under duress, as she seems very upset about her enrolment, however I believe the way she has threatened me constitutes as bullying.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this,
Please ensure any replies are by email so I have a documented trail.
