A 40-year-old mother who was arrested for allegedly assaulting her son’s educator on Friday at Leema Primary School in Tlhatlaganyane near Sun City is expected to appear in the Mogwase Magistrate court today.

It is alleged that a 52-year-old Educator was in the company of two of her colleagues and about to enter school premises when she saw the suspect at the gate. According to information received, the suspect accused the Educator of ill-treating her child. She allegedly told the Educator that she will teach her a lesson. The Educator was allegedly still responding and explaining that she does not ill-treat learners when the suspect attacked her with an umbrella she was carrying. The victim was repeatedly assaulted on the head and hands where she sustained injuries including open wounds.

The suspect fled the scene after the incident and the victim managed to enter the school premises and was later taken to the clinic for medical treatment.
