An abused wife was rescued from her husband after sending a note to her son’s teacher, asking for help, according to police in Spain.
The mother of the boy, who was not identified, was living in a constant state of physical and psychological abuse by her husband.
She was unable to leave the house by herself, or use a cellphone or Internet without the permission of her husband.
The mother of two children decided to request help from her son’s school teacher. She wrote a note, describing her situation, and hid it in her son’s school homework.
When her son’s teacher reviewed the homework, she discovered the note and called the police. Investigators told the school to invite the mother for a meeting with the principal.
Her husband accompanied her to the school, but he waited outside as his wife was speaking with detectives. The woman showed the police signs of physical abuse, and her husband was arrested.
He was charged with one count of domestic violence. The husband was released on bail, but was banned from having any contact with his wife.
