Mum furious after ‘woman jumps out of car and smacks son, 13, across face’

A mum has been left furious after her son was allegedly attacked by a random woman who smashed his glasses.

Lindsay Lea's son Jack was walking home with a pal in Wallasey when the alleged incident took place.

She claims a woman got out of her car, threatened Jack and smacked him across the face, breaking his glasses.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s, is said to have stopped the boys at 5.25pm on Monday and allegedly threatened to put Jack, 13, in hospital.

Lindsay is now worried about letting her son walk home from school alone.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Lindsay said: "He was walking on Poulton Road, next to Oxton Park and said to his friend 'how's things?' That happened and a sliver Corsa on the road came up, a lady wound her window down and said 'if you say anything else about me I'll put you in hospital'.

"He decided to just ignore it and carried on walking, the car caught up with them, the lady got out the passenger side, went over to him and smacked him across the face."

Lindsay claims the woman swore at the schoolboy and made comments about his appearance.

She added: "It was completely bizarre, his friend wouldn't leave Jack and his mum brought him home."

Jack's glasses were broken after he was smacked and the schoolboy has been left "shaken" by the incident.

Lindsay said: "Jack was really shaken and shocked obviously. He had redness around his nose and the lenses came out his glasses and we had to get them fixed. He's been really quiet since.

"He wanted me to speak to the ECHO, he wanted people to know in case it happened to them.

"I don't know where she got the thought he was talking about her, the car would have been behind them at that point. So even if he said anything about her how would she know? How would she hear that in the car?"

She continued: "He's just an innocent boy walking home from school, minding his own business, walking with a friend and he gets attacked."

They reported the incident to the police but it wasn't picked up by any CCTV cameras covering the area.

Jack's mum is determined to catch the woman responsible and has asked anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.

"For whatever reason she did that and I don't want that to happen to anyone else, I'd have that on my conscience," she said.

"It's not on to hit anyone unprovoked but especially not a minor. It could have been worse."

Lindsay said she is now wary about letting Jack out alone following the incident.

She said: "I'm worried to let him out. I' worried that if I let him walk home something else might happen but also I don't want to stop him because that's his independence."

Lindsay said she wants to make other parents aware and advises them to speak to their children about possible dangers.

"Just be careful with your children, tell them to watch out and be aware of others."

Her post about the incident on social media garnered a huge reaction with hundreds of people responding offers of help.

The mum says she's been "overwhelmed" by the kindness of others.

She said: "Thank you to everyone and thank you for the support because they're complete strangers.

"There was even someone who works at Specsavers who offered to fix his glasses."
