Boy, 11, punched on way to school

Dorset Echo: Boy, 11, punched on way to school Boy, 11, punched on way to school

A SCHOOLBOY has been left 'terrified' after a woman allegedly punched him in the head on his way to school.

Ollie Streather-Paul, 11, who suffers from brittle asthma, was on the Number 1 First bus travelling from Fortuneswell on Portland to Royal Manor Arts College when the attack happened.

His shocked mother Claire Streather is urging people who saw the attack at around 8am on WEdnesdaya or might know the women to come forward.

Mrs Streather, of Spring Gardens, Portland, said: “Ollie is small for his age and is now absolutely terrified because this woman is still out there. He is refusing to get the bus to school.

“He went off to get the bus as usual and it was packed, with kids pushing and jostling. Ollie was pushed into this woman who punched him on the back of his head and off his seat. She then got off at Portland Heights Hotel.

“Ollie now feels sick and dizzy. If she had punched him in the back he would have had an asthma attack and probably be in hospital.”

Brittle asthma is a severe form of the condition which results in frequent and serious attacks.

Mrs Streather said that Ollie, who is year seven at the arts college, was helped into school by a group of older girls.

“He gets a public bus not the school bus because that one gets so busy, but he said he did not recognise the woman. I find it unbelievable that this can happen. You should be able to put your children on the bus knowing that they will be safe.”

She said the woman had dark curly hair and a slightly tanned face.

Police Inspector Les Fry said: “We are aware of this matter and a report has been made. We are investigating the matter and would appeal for witnesses and anyone who knows anything about this should call 101 or report it via Crimestoppers.”

While such an attack is repugnant regardless of gender, I suspect if a man had punched a small female child the entire Dorset Police force would be out and headlines abound for days.

When she is found it will be interesting to see if one, her face is published in the paper as a man's would undoubtedly be, two, if the law is applied to the same level of treatment and punishment as a man would get for the same crime.

Lets hope she is found.

I was working on Portland in June and caught the same bus as a lot of the school children from Royal Manor. they were always polite, helpful to each other and a pleasure to travel with. I think this woman should try and be a bit more understanding when the bus is busy and she loses her "personal space" for a few minutes. I have nothing but respect for these students, they are a credit to their school.

I must say that some time back I had to use a bus from Wyke to Portland and while a small handful of students were rather rude and ignorant, I was very pleased to see the responsible attitudes of quite a number of them. One young girl even having a go at another student reminding them of how the School has told them members of public (non students) must be allowed on the bus first and not to shove and push.Sadly the small group was so bad the driver had to stop everyone getting on for a while.

It was quite uplifting though to see someone so young act responsible and thoughtful like that for a change. A reminder to those bad ones in the group what shame they bring on the rest.

I don't know it was commenter James young you was accusing of that, aside from dozens of other accusations, hate speeches and feminist spittle on other articles. Seeing as you have spent dozens of comments claiming to represent these women and women's groups on other threads I will leave the public to see you for what you are.

Oh Good heavens, do you think everytime someone makes an obseration about the female gender and the differences between the way they are treated or portrayed compared to men, often quite correctly, that they have to, "hate all women"?

Even I am getting fed up with hearing that kind of "feminist" response. If you must respond please do so with some intelligence.

You really are a nasty piece of work aren't you. I slapped my son. No inverted comment needed. I slapped him because he was misbehaving and I want him to grow up to respect those around him. It's a world away from this incident. It's a shame that you continue to stoop so low when I volunteered the information merely to point out that in the case of domestic violence towards children, the law now counts cases which most people would not consider unreasonable. I'm not going to indulge in trading insults with you any further, but you could at least stick to the topic in hand.

An interesting thought, I often study how many times people do not consider exactly that when the alleged perpetrator is a male ? One only has to peruse the comments on any newspaper to see the social conditioning as clear as a bell..

That aside, you are quite right though.

I have not seen any "women hating" comments as you falsley imply, but I have seen plenty of spiteful comments and other inflamatory/accusato
