In a wild and shocking incident, a 31-year-old mother, Lynzina Sutton, managed to successfully bypass security and enter her daughter’s classroom to assault her child’s teacher.

The bizarre event unfolded at Lincoln Middle School in Syracuse, New York after Sutton’s daughter faced disciplinary action for allegedly lying about her whereabouts during the school day. The situation then escalated when her daughter reportedly declared to the teacher: “My mom will handle this.”

According to the New York Post, on Friday 16 February 2024, Sutton attended the school accompanied by her mother, Roxanne Thompkins, with the sole goal of entering the premises. While the student’s grandmother, Thompkins, was denied entry, Sutton—who is only 4 foot 10 inches—managed to slip past security undetected, using a hoodie to conceal her identity.

The 31-year-old then sought out her daughter’s classroom, where the horrifying assault took place. Sutton allegedly punched the female teacher’s face multiple times in the presence of approximately 25 shocked students.

The victim, described as a dedicated veteran educator, suffered extensive injuries, including a concussion and multiple fractures in her face. Onondaga District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick, addressing the press on Tuesday 20 February, likened the injuries to those seen in a boxing match and expressed concerns about the teacher’s long-term recovery, particularly the impact on her nasal passages: “These are injuries you don’t often see in a boxing match.”

Following the assault, Sutton left the school premises but was later apprehended and now faces charges of burglary and assault. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and examining the daughter’s claim of bullying that allegedly went unaddressed by the school, potentially contributing to the violent outburst.

Syracuse City School District’s Superintendent Anthony Davis underscored the importance of ensuring educators’ safety and expressed deep concern over the violent episode that unfolded within the confines of a place dedicated to learning: “When people are dedicating their lives to educating our students, they shouldn’t have to worry about this,” Davis stated.

However, during an interview with CYNCentral, Sutton’s mother shared her frustration with the school, citing her granddaughter’s alleged victimisation through bullying that she claims the school failed to address adequately: “She’s been slapped, she’s been kicked, they’ve broken her glasses three times, they’ve broken cellphones twice, and all we get [from the school] is, ‘Well what is she doing?’ They made her out to be the problem.”

Despite the regrettable incident, Thompkins expressed empathy for the injured teacher, stating that the altercation was never meant to unfold in such a violent manner.

Sutton, who has been released on bond, is expected to appear in court at a later date. Meanwhile, the injured teacher has now been released from the hospital and is on the path to recovery.
