Heide in Schleswig-Holstein can't get out of the negative headlines.
Now a father describes how his daughter was beaten by a classmate.
Before that, she received a death threat.
Munich – This incident only leaves you shaking your head.
Because the allegations are unbelievable.
reports on another act of violence among young people in Heide in Schleswig-Holstein.
The place just gained national notoriety when a video surfaced showing a girl group torturing a 13-year-old girl.
Now, in the tabloid report, a 56-year-old father has his say, who has even turned to the bullying expert Carsten Stahl.
It's about his twelve-year-old daughter, who is apparently being ensnared by a boy whose affection she refuses.
That is why she is said to have received a death threat from him via WhatsApp on January 12.
A screenshot of a chat shows the message: "I'll kill you tomorrow." As the girl's father further reports, he received a call from school at 7:45 a.m. the morning after this threat.
He was told that his daughter had been beaten and that he should pick her up.
Youth violence in Heide: Father describes a student's attack on his twelve-year-old daughter
"My daughter had been given a right-left combination with her fist by a classmate and was immediately bleeding on the floor," the man describes the incident.
But that was not all: "Before, the girl had pulled her hair." The assumption: Due to the scorned love, the boy could have incited the other girl and possibly even encouraged the act of violence against the twelve-year-old.
After the attack, the father took his daughter to an orthodontist because the teenager had only recently had braces.
An MRI found that the jaw was bruised.
What makes the 56-year-old particularly stunned: Despite the incident that happened on a Friday, the attacker and his affected daughter were back in class on Monday - the next day of school.
"Apparently nothing happened at school," complains the understandably upset man: "Everything is being twisted!
The victims have to change schools with us, the perpetrators are allowed to stay.”

Also alarming are the words that Heide's mayor Oliver Schmidt-Gutzat
found in relation to the
- in particular as a reaction to the video mentioned at the beginning: "The city of Heide clearly has - since last year at the latest - a problem with youth violence and also Juvenile delinquency.” Due to the increasing number of crimes committed by young people and young adults – including robbery, threats and bodily harm – a square and its side streets had been declared a “dangerous place”.
This resulted in bans, controls and discussions, and surveillance cameras have been installed in the meantime, which the SPD politician would now like to turn on again.
At that time it became clear that the younger ones wanted to be noticed better and demanded more places for meeting places.
Since then, the situation seemed to have improved and things were going in the right direction.
But now Schmidt-Gutzat is appealing to the citizens: "I would then also ask that you report everything you see and not look away and not be intimidated either."
This Friday, a round of all secondary schools in the 20,000-inhabitant town in the Dithmarschen district is to speak about the consequences of recent events and "the consequences of this, but also about the issue of violence in Heide in general".
The responsible school board called for this.
