Mom looks on while son punches and kicks educators

Students and staff at Hedensted school in Jutland were shocked when a 15-year-old student began punching, kicking and spitting on two teachers.

Poul Steffensen, the commissioner at Southeast Jutland Police confirmed that the school has reported the incident to police.

“The case began last Friday when two students got into a fight,” Steffensen told Ekstra Bladet. “One of them left and came back with his mother and interrupted classes.”

Violent attack
Steffensen said that the student became aggressive and attacked two teachers – one 43 and the other 34-years-old – with his fists and feet. He is also alleged to have spat on the teachers.

Head teacher Vibeke Ancker said that the incident was so violent that she felt she had to report it to the police.

“I cannot be specific about what happened, but it was so violent that I chose to make a police report,” she said.
