OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An Oakland woman has been arrested on suspicion of attacking a 9-year-old girl with a hammer at the girl’s elementary school.

Oakland Unified School District spokesman Troy Flint said Saturday Haseemah Dieme was taken into custody at Lafayette Elementary School Friday after authorities say she sneaked the hammer onto campus and attacked the girl inside a bathroom.

Flint says Dieme’s own daughter is in second grade at the school and that she frequently volunteers there.

Flint says the girl was taken to a hospital with injuries but that she was conscious and expected to recover.

Dieme, who is believed to be feuding with the victim’s family, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
