A naked teacher with a history of mental illness tried to rape a female pupil during Monday lunchtime in China. Shocking images show the 30-year old teacher pinning the unsuspecting girl up against a wall in a bear hug.
The suspect, named Hou, is thought to be a laboratory caretaker at Taiping Middle School, in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. At least six other schoolboys looked on in horror as their schoolmate screamed for help.
During the school’s lunch break, Hou rushed into the playground naked before harassing the victim. Teachers later arrived on the scene to subdue the crazed caretaker. However, authorities knew that Hou struggled with mental illness.
A police spokesman said: "The suspect appears to have been suffering from mental disorders since 2011, but doctors said he would have been fine if the illness had not returned in two years."The young girl will see a psychiatrist after the traumatic event, but has not reported any physical pain. Hou has been detained by police and it is unclear whether he will be fired from his post.
