Mom, 35, is beaten unconscious by 13-year old school bully, after she stormed school to report her son was being bullied

A New Jersey mom pushing her baby in a stroller was viciously attacked and left for dead by a high school bully who took exception to her 12-year-old son defending the rights of Mexican immigrants.

Beronica Ruiz, 35, of Passaic, was brutally attacked after she complained to the school's vice principal about three students who threatened her son and told him to 'go back to Mexico,' the woman's attorney said Friday.

Ruiz was hospitalized for two days after the 13-year-old student – one of three who had been taunting her son – allegedly jumped her while she was with her baby and the 12-year-old boy. 

'This was a horrific and brutal attack,' lawyer Daniel Santiago said. 'It takes a certain level of insanity to brutally attack a mother with a stroller and leave her for dead.'


Ruiz suffered a fractured eye socket, bruises and a bloodshot eye that remained red for days after the attack.

The day prior to the attack, Ruiz's son was taunted in the school cafeteria of Passaic Gifted and Talented Academy School No. 20.

'They were chanting 'Mexicans should go back behind the wall,' Santiago told NJ Media.

When the young boy replied: 'We all come from immigrants' the bullies allegedly threatened violence, Santiago said.

When the boy went home that afternoon, he told his mother about the threats of violence and said he was afraid to return to the school.

Ruiz then went to the school and complained to the vice principal, demanding to know why the school had not told her of the abuse.   

The vice principal admitted to the mother that he should have called them but that he had become busy with other matters, Santiago said.

'That's a woefully inadequate response,' Santiago said. 'My bad' is not a good excuse for not calling (the parents), not telling them.'

The vice prinicipal also allegedly refused to suspend the student before the attack and said the attacker 'had just as much right to an education as her son.'

It was only after the boy's father, Alfonso Vasquez, contacted Passaic Mayor Hector Lora that the teen bully was suspended, Santiago said.

The attack took place after the teen was suspended.
