OAKLAND: A third-grader at Lafayette Elementary School was beaten with a hammer inside a local school restroom on Friday. The woman responsible is another child’s mother. The school district identified the woman as Haseemah Diame, a well-known volunteer at the school. Both Diame and her victim are immigrants from Yemen.
ABC News The young girl was brought to the ER at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland but we’re told her injuries are not serious. The school district says the girl may have had an argument with the woman’s daughter, but the motive behind the attack goes much deeper than that.
