Police: Angry mom rams kindergarten teacher's head into file cabinet

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

An angry mother confronted her son's teacher and hit her in the face, jerked her hair and rammed her head against a file cabinet, according to a Kansas City Police Department report.

Kansas City resident Simone Baker, who will turn 25 later this month, was issued a municipal citation for inflicting bodily injury.

The Hickman-Mills School District teacher suffered a bruise on her arm and some redness and swelling to her face. The teacher went to an area hospital where she was treated and released.

The teacher was not at Truman Elementary School Friday, and a district official at the teacher's house Friday afternoon said the teacher wasn't up to talking.

The attack occurred about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the Kansas City Police Department. The teacher told police that Baker entered her classroom "and wanted to talk to her about what her son stated (the teacher) did to him in class earlier today."

The teacher said if she wanted to speak with her and the principal that she would need to return on Friday. She said the woman was demanding and headed to the principal's office where she reportedly created the scene before returning to the teacher's class. The woman said she was upset over something that the teacher had done to her son earlier in the day.

"You better not touch my kid again," Baker yelled to the teacher, according to the police report.

The mother was reportedly upset about a scratch on her 6-year-old son's neck that she claimed the teacher inflicted. The child had been disciplined earlier in the day.

District officials said Friday night that the boy's father brought the boy to school Friday, and that the boy recanted his story. The district said the boy admitted the teacher had not hurt or scratched him.

The woman ran behind the teacher's desk and "struck her in the face with an open fist 5 to 10 times as she held" the teacher's arm down to her side, the report says. She then grabbed the teacher "by her hair and picked her up out of the chair and struck her head against a file cabinet two times."

She then fled from the classroom.

Police are reviewing surveillance video from inside the school, according to the police report.

"She came up to the school very irate," Ebony Walker, the district's spokeswoman, told KCTV5. "The administration did everything they do to keep her calm. They asked her to leave."

Walker said the district would pursue every legal means possible against the parent.

"We are always continuing to ensure the safety of our students and staff," Walker said. "We're very concerned about this measure and we're doing everything we possibly can to ensure the safety of our staff and the students."

Truman Elementary is at 9601 James A. Reed Rd.

KCTV5 is not identifying the teacher.

Police have yet to locate Baker. She is due in court on Oct. 22.
