Mum, 34, Goes To School 'Wearing Boxing Glove And Assaults 12-Year-Old Student'

A mum was arrested after she allegedly turned up to her daughter's school with boxing gloves and attacked a student.

Edith Riddle, from Jacksonville, US, went down to DuPont Middle School earlier this month following an issue between her daughter and another student at the school.

She was accompanied by a male visitor and a student from another school

The trio then reportedly made their way to the school cafeteria, with Riddle's daughter darting over to a fellow student, 12, and pushing her to the ground.

Riddle, 34 is then said to have joined in, throwing 'several punches to the victim's head' - while reportedly wearing the glove - until staff managed to pull her away.

Footage of the attack, filmed on a mobile phone, shows the young student lying on the ground surrounded by Riddle, a male adult, a middle schooler and a high school student.

According to reports, Riddle told the school that the glove was 'super glued' to her hand.

She was later arrested and charged with one count of child abuse with a personal or special weapon, while the victim reportedly suffered cuts to her knees and forearms and was taken to hospital for treatment.

According to a report by Duval County School Police, the assault involved two adults, a high schooler, and a middle schooler.

Crystal Wiltsee, the mother of the injured student, has now asked how two adults could have been allowed to get onto the campus.

She said: "The moment that she chose to touch this one, it's a whole other - and she's just not to blame, I put the school to blame just as much as her, because had they escorted the lady off the property when they showed up to the school in boxing gloves. That's not normal."

Speaking about Riddle's arrest, Ms Wiltsee added: "Now she's scared... It's complete and utter bullcrap."

Last year, Barry Lee Jones, 54, was arrested and charged with assault after slamming his son's opponent to the ground after he allegedly performed an illegal move.

His son, a student at Hickory Ridge High School in North Carolina, US, was competing in a wrestling match against a student from Southeast Guilford High School - also in North Carolina - when he was body slammed, according to the Metro.

And it was at that moment that Jones raced over and grabbed the young lad, pushing him across the mat and down to the ground.

According to North Carolina High School Athletic Association, the referee had given the hand signal to call the move out.

Sharon Contreras, the Superintendent of Schools for Guilford County, told Fox 8: "It's very unfortunate, and it just shows a society that I feel sometimes we're just losing all decorum.

"I want to say that the parents from that high school wrote us a lovely letter saying they were equally appalled."
