She wanted to avenge her son. A 36-year-old mother was taken into custody Friday in Saint-Germain-Lespinasse (Loire) after beating two boys aged 11 and 12, who allegedly fought with her son, several local media reported.
The facts occurred Friday at a bus stop in this town, located near Roanne. Accompanied by her son, the mother of the family sets an ambush for the two boys. When they arrive, she takes to task one of them, designated by her son as her attacker. She slaps him, before making him fall and kicking him several times while he is on the ground, says Le Pays Roannais.
The second boy tries to run away to call his father for help. But the mother grabbed him by the legs to stop him, until a local woman intervened to put an end to the scene.
"You can't do justice to yourself"
A complaint against the mother was filed with the gendarmerie by the parents of the students assaulted. She was placed in police custody in the wake of aggravated violence against minors.
"I can understand the emotion and anger, if the violence committed on his child a few days before is proven. But I cannot tolerate such acts, "responded the prosecutor of the Republic of Roanne, Abdelkrim Grini, quoted by the weekly. "You can't do justice to yourself in our country. This is unacceptable. She should have come to file a complaint with the gendarmerie, we would have done our job and we would have acted accordingly, "he continued.
This case recalls another news item, which occurred in Roanne, nearly a year ago, says the Country: in October 2022, a father had hit a teenager suspected of having sexually assaulted his 6-year-old daughter. The man was given an eight-month suspended sentence in March.
