This is the moment a mother launches a vicious attack on a schoolgirl who she thought had bullied her daughter.
Auckland mother Nicola-Jane Jenks can be seen in the video screaming at a group of girls in school uniform as she launches into an attack on a 17-year-old girl.
‘You f***ing little b****. You touch my daughter again…’ she can be heard yelling in the video that was sent to the New Zealand Herald.
She appears to drag the girl by her hair as her friend’s yell for Jenks to get off her.
‘You touch my daughter again you little cow and I will hurt you and that goes for the rest of you, alright.’
Jenks then appears to hit the girl on the back of the head.
‘F*** off, f*** off, f*** off,’ Jenks screams at the group.
‘And you, you little cow, if you come near me or my daughter again I will bash you so hard into the middle of next week. Do you understand?’ She yells at the girl before slapping her across the face.
The video, which was filmed in May near Mount Albert Grammar School, was sent to the New Zealand Herald by the victim’s mother.
Jenks leaded guilty to common assault at Auckland District Court but escaped without conviction at her sentencing hearing on Thursday.
Judge Tony Fitzgerald said the ‘bad decision’ shouldn’t impact the rest of her life.
The victims mother said she felt disheartened at the result of the sentencing.
‘It’s not okay to for a 50-year-old woman to hit a child, especially around the head.’
The assault was allegedly sparked after Jenks received a phone call from her daughter, who was terrified and upset.
While Ms Jenks is apologetic for her actions, she told the NZ Herald her actions were the product of unrelenting bullying.
Her young daughter had been suffering panic attacks and avoiding school due to the verbal and physical abuse the bully was inflicting on her, and Ms Jenks was fed up with the school’s inaction.
The teenager suffered some bruising and spent some time in hospital to monitor for internal injuries.
