The 30-year-old suspect, identified only by his surname, works in the laboratories of Taiping High School in Lingshan County, Guangxi province in China.

Reports said Huo undressed before he tried to rape the teenager inside the campus around noontime on March 28. He was seen holding the girl from behind and pushing her against the wall of a classroom.

The victim was freed after Huo's co-teachers rushed to the scene and intervened. The student was not injured but got traumatized.

According to a statement released by the Publicity Department of Lingshan County, Huo was treated for psycotic episodes in 2011 and was allowed to return to work two years later.

However, he was not allowed to teach and was only assigned in the school laboratories. He was performing well until Monday's incident happened.

An investigation conducted by the city's Public Security Bureau is reportedly underway.
