An act of retribution may have provoked a woman to brutally attack a third grader inside an Oakland elementary school bathroom, police say.
Students at Oakland’s Lafayette school knew something was wrong when they saw officers arrive at school Friday morning. They arrived to arrest Haseemah Diame, a parent and volunteer at the school.
Police say Diame walked onto the campus during recess armed with a hammer and pulled a 9-year-old girl aside.
“She was able to lure this other girl away from the play yard during recess into an adjacent bathroom there by the school. Once in the bathroom the adult proceeded to assault the girl with a hammer,” said school spokesman Troy Flint.
The attack was serious enough to draw blood.
