Washington, D.C., police are investigating a parent who was caught on surveillance cameras punching a 7-year-old in the stomach.
According to WLJA, the child’s mother, Lena Mclean, requested the video of the Spring Academy’s hallway after her 7-year-old son John told her he had been assaulted by a schoolmate’s parent. The punch caused the child to slump over after it was over.
“I was in the hallway, the day was on Wednesday, and then somebody punched me in my stomach,” John said. “It made my stomach real painful.“
The parent walked out the building afterwards.
Mclean later criticized school officials who she believes did nothing during and after the incident.
“You watched my son on that ground and you didn’t do nothing … and all you could say to me is you was playing” said Lena.
“You don’t bully a child, you don’t torment a child. I wouldn’t do that to you. I wouldn’t do that to none of your kids. I’ll feel much better when he is locked up,” she added.
