They probably just need time to get used to each other. You need to make sure each one has their own feed bucket or whatever you use and their own pile of hay. Do you have any fencing or gates that you could use temporarily to divide the stall until they get used to each other.
I have a similar problem as we just got a 5 month old but my other 2 horses are older and guys so I had no hopes of putting anyone "together". However until we get another stall completed I divided a stall with a pipe gate and one side is for my 17 yr old gelding; the other is for the filly. By the way these two get along just fine out in the pasture where there's lots of room. I just wouldn't trust the big old guy in a confined space like a stall.

Sure she's going to get hurt. That's an accident looking for a place to happen. Why do that and try to force the issue?
I would not force the little filly in with the one that is bullying her and lock her in a stall with her. Absolutely not. Would you like to be locked in a room with someone that is trying to knock the snot out of you? At best, she'll be a nervous wreck.
She's new, she needs time to adjust. Give them plenty of time to adjust outside and give them their own space in the barn.
