Teacher beaten up by pupils

2012-10-15 07:15

Four teenage boys and a girl from a Oosterland High School near Secunda assaulted a teacher from a neighbouring school so badly over the weekend that he had to be admitted to hospital.

Attie Rudolph (44) sustained severe concussion on Friday night at Secunda High School and had to have stitches for a cut on the back of his head, Beeld reported.

The attack took place around 7pm at a dance arranged by the school as part of their spring celebrations.

Rudolph was allegedly confronted at the school gate by a group of teenagers who said they had come to collect a girl who was in the school hall.

Rudolph told them that only the girls’ parents were allowed to collect her, asked them to leave and then walked away.

He was attacked from behind and smashed over the head with a heavy object, after which he fell to the ground.
He was kicked in the face before his attackers fled, but they were identified by a witness.

Rudolph was admitted to hospital for treatment, and discharged on Saturday.

A charge of assault has been laid against the five assailants.
