Fu­ri­ous mom holds preschool head­mas­ter at knife­point over $15

Global Times - - Mosaic -

A mother who pulled a knife on a kinder­garten head­mas­ter dur­ing a dis­pute over 100 yuan ($15) got her money back – and eight days in po­lice de­ten­tion, the Beijing Times re­ported.

Shock­ing video shows the fu­ri­ous mother, sur­named Wang, stand­ing be­hind the seated teacher with a knife at her throat at the school in Huainan, An­hui Prov­ince on Mon­day.

“You go­ing to give back my money? You think this will solve the prob­lem? If I can’t hold on to this 100 yuan, I won’t be able to hold on to any money ever,” Wang can be heard shout­ing.

The teacher, who ap­pears to re­main quite calm, re­lents and asks for her wal­let, the 71-sec­ond clip shows.

Huainan po­lice said Wang de­cided to with­draw her child’s en­roll­ment from the kinder­garten af­ter pay­ing a 100 yuan fee for the child’s sleep­ing mat and bed­ding.

Wang be­came vi­o­lent when she was told she could not be re­funded for the bed­ding.

“The head­mas­ter agreed at first,” an of­fi­cer sur­named Li with Huainan’s Yuan­nan po­lice sta­tion told the Beijing Times, “but when she saw the bed­ding was a lit­tle dirty, she said there was no way she could re­fund her be­cause other par­ents wouldn’t want it.”

Wang left the scene af­ter she was re­turned the money. Po­lice later took Wang into cus­tody for the incident. She will serve eight days in de­ten­tion, po­lice said.
