Latina leaves detergent in Dubai school, causes panic

All students and staff are safe: Dubai Police.

Students at a Dubai school have been released and handed over to their parents after the campus went into a lockdown when an intruder allegedly entered the premises early Wednesday morning. 

According to a tweet by the Dubai Police, a Latin woman, in her 30s, used parent access card to enter the school and performed a suspicious activity on the premises before leaving the location. It added that they have successfully dealt with the situation and the students and staff are safe.

In a statement issued by the police, Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri said that the mother had left a ‘detergent bottle’ at the school.

Dubai Police took immediate action to confirm the nature of the material – and the mother is being questioned to determine the causes for her action.

He added that the school administration caused unnecessary panic by sending an urgent text message raising fear among parents.

However, school sources told Khaleej Times that there were two intruders who broke into the campus.

More than 100 parents waited for nearly an hour outside the GEMS Wellington Academy in Al Khail, as the Dubai Police and the CID investigated the situation. 

The children were placed in the corners of their classroom after an alert was sent out throughout the school. 

“My child was messaging me that he was scared and wanted to get picked up,” one parent said. “I immediately rushed to the school and saw that many other parents were waiting outside too. They weren’t telling us anything that happened or why they weren’t releasing the children.” 

After waiting, the parents were taken inside the school to pick their children. It was then they were told that “two strangers had intruded into the school”.

Earlier, a GEMS spokesperson had issued this statement: “We have been made aware of an incident which happened at one of our schools this morning. Authorities are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident. All students are safe under the provision of school authorities while this matter is investigated further.”
