Teacher on her way to school victim of attack with acid

Assailants confronted a school teacher while she was on the way to class Wednesday morning and one person dumped acid on her. She suffered serious burns.

The attack is being attributed to a child support dispute. The person who dumped the acid was identified as a woman. She was accompanied by at least one and perhaps two men near the local school in Santa Gertrudis de Grecia where the victim has worked for five years.

Fuerza Pública officers later detained a woman who is in a relationship with the father of the teacher’s son. Agents said that this is the second time in a short period that the teacher was attacked.
