Mother Attacked Daughter’s Classmate At School For Alleged Bullying, Reports Say

Aberdeen Police Department

A mother from Maryland, 41-year-old Kelly Sadik, reportedly attacked a 12-year-old girl she believed was bullying her daughter. The mother entered Aberdeen Middle School close to 8:15 a.m. by utilizing the intercom; however, she didn’t go straight to the school’s office and instead headed to the classroom with her daughter, officials told WBAL-TV

 Capt. Will Reiber informed WJZ,

“A verbal confrontation ensued. [Sadik] at one point placed their hands on the child, grabbing them in an effort to continue the conversation…Ultimately, the teacher was able to intervene.” 

Jason Neidig, the sergeant, said the mother left a bruise on the student’s left arm. The father of the girl who was assaulted, Charles Bates, admitted that he was stunned when he received a call about the encounter. He told the news outlet,

“The biggest concern was how quickly she got into the school, she bypassed the office, and then she got a direction location of where my daughter was.” 

He added,

“She could have had a weapon. She could have had anything. That’s the most frightening part about it.” 

The mother was charged with second-degree assault and trespassing.

Harford County Public Schools stated that protocols are set in place for visitors and revealed that the school reacted promptly when those protocols were broken. Donoven Brooks, the safety and security chief said,

“We vet folks that are coming into our schools. Protocol was followed today by our staff. Unfortunately, we had a parent that decided to break protocol… Fortunately, we had staff members who immediately identified, through their vigilance, and just knowing the building — that there was something that was not right and immediately stepped in to take action.”

The grandmother of the girl who attacked revealed that her granddaughter was also bullied. She said,

“It’s not just my granddaughter I’m concerned about, I’m concerned about all these kids,”

she said.

“If [the school or school district is] doing something, tell us what you’re doing. I’ve asked that question so many times.”
