FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Cumberland County deputies had to use a stun gun on a woman who they say assaulted school resource officers while trying to pick up her son Tuesday at a Fayetteville middle school.

A spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said Allyison Alicia Mims-Whitner went to Lewis Chapel Middle School shortly before 2 p.m. to try to check her son out of classes for the day, but that the boy was afraid of her and did not want to go with her.

Mims-Whitner, according to authorities, is not the boy’s custodial parent.

As school resource officers questioned her, she became irate and combative and refused to leave without the child, authorities said.

That’s when she allegedly assaulted the officers, which prompted them to use a stun gun.

Mims-Whitner was arrested and charged with one count of trespassing, two counts of resist, delay and obstruction of justice and two counts of assault on a government official.

China Briefing: Kidnapping Attempts on Foreign Schoolkids in Beijing


Foreign schoolchildren are the potential new targets in child kidnapping cases following an incident at one of Beijing’s luxury compounds this past weekend.

On Saturday afternoon at approximately 4:30 p.m., the student was outside the side exit of the Yosemite Villa Estate and a man, unknown to her, came towards her and gave her a hug. She pushed him away but he then attempted to lift her up and drag her into his car. Fortunately a guard and a taxi driver stepped forward to help her and she safely returned home. The incident has been reported to the police for further investigation … The suspect is described as a 30-40 year old Chinese man of average height and build, short (buzz) haircut, frame-less glasses, wearing a dark-colored jacket and pants, and driving a small dark-colored car.

It’s not just children. There have been reported cases of kidnappers targeting women driving expensive cars. BJ is no different than any major city. Where I come from, car jacking is not unusual. You should always be on alert and pay attention to your surroundings.

Yes it is true and this is not the first time this happend. Young woman I know was attacked by a man in the city. She is rather tall and could get away but can tell you that she still “carries” it with her.
And another kidnap attempt happend near the Yashow. Her friend could help her and also there was a little van approaching them with open door.

It made me more allert and even it is a boy, still foreigner, my 14 year old boy is (was) not allowed to go to town in the evening or during day by himself by taxi. But now not even by himself in the neighbourhood. I know it must be possible to do so but I am very glad he understands my concerns and he deals with this without any comment. Only the idea that they take you child…
And I agree with Esther we all have to be allert why should this not happen in Beijing while it happens everywere else in the world.
It does not mean we must be scared to go out of the house but just be allert.

According to the China Briefing post, a few schools have issued warnings to parents and have offered some advice on what to do in such situations. Click here to read more.
