Immigrant mother 'battered boy, 10, with a pipe' after he 'told her to go back to her own country'
A boy of ten claims he was beaten around the head with a pipe by a Slovakian immigrant after he threw a berry at her and told her to 'go back to her own country'.
Jake Stedman was found in a pool of blood after insulting the woman in her 20s, who is believed to have a child at the same primary school.
He says she chased him down an alleyway before repeatedly striking him on the head and back with the 2ft pipe as he cowered on the floor, leaving him with two black eyes.
His mother, Amanda Stedman, 29, from Chatham, Kent, said: "I came running out the house and saw him lying in a pool of blood crying.
"He was completely in shock - he's just a little boy.
"I know he can misbehave and he's easily led but for this to happen is outrageous."
Police were standing guard at Luton Junior School in Chatham at leaving time last night in an attempt to prevent racial tensions in the area rising further.
Parents angrily confronted four officers outside the school gates over the incident, which took place a week last Saturday.
A number said an increasing number of Slovak families in the area had led to friction with British parents.
