A 38-year-old woman has admitted to a charge of assault after she was taken to court for attacking a teacher at the Kwun Tong Government Primary School (Sau Ming Road) last October.
The woman, who bears the surname Tse, pleaded guilty to “assault causing bodily harm” on Monday at the Kwun Tong Magistrates’ Courts, Ming Pao Daily News reported.
Tse has been accused of slapping her son’s teacher — a person surnamed Cheng – on the face as many as ten times, and also stomping on the latter’s foot, in a fit of rage.
The assault took place on Oct. 15 after the woman learnt that her son was not allowed recess by the teacher, according to the report.
Despite Cheng’s repeated efforts to explain her decision, Tse slapped the teacher repeatedly before grabbing the latter’s arms and stomping on her left foot.
Deputy Principal Lo wai-fong and other teachers tried to stop Tse but did not succeed.
Cheng later called the police, leading to Tse’s arrest at her home.
Following the assault, Cheng is said to have suffered pain on the back of her neck, swelling on her left forearm, bruises on her left calf and foot and scratches on her lips.
Tse has been released on cash bail of HK$5,000 and a surety bail of HK$2,000. The court will conduct a further hearing on the case on March 31.
