Parents are angry after their children’s teacher ordered them to undress and threatened to cut off their private parts in class, a child protection organization in Denmark said.

7-year-old children who attend the Strandmolle School in Assens, told their parents that the teacher ordered two boys to undress before threatening to cut off the private parts with a pair of scissors for forgetting to bring hats to a school party.

The young boys were also ordered to climb into garbage cans in front of the whole school as a punishment. School officials admitted that the action was inappropriate, but said that the teacher was trying to be funny.

Parents however, were dissatisfied with the school’s response and complained to a child protection group. “The teacher apologized and we consider the matter as closed,” the school’s vice president said.

A police spokesperson said that they have received an official complaint and launched an investigation, but so far, no arrests have been made.
