WLS teacher accused of assaulting 8-year-old student

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) A Jackman Elementary School special intervention teacher is out of the classroom after being accused of assaulting an 8 year year old boy with autism.

According to the police report, the incident occurred September 26, but a police report was filed October 17.

Superintendent Dr. Kadee Andstat says due process has taken some time.

"It took longer than I wanted it to take, I am going to be honest with you. We had our eyes on the child had other adults in the room, an ongoing thing."

According the the police report filed with TPD, the teacher:

"... grabbed the student by the wrist and forcibly removed him from the classroom, he was then taken into the hallway and thrown against a window and left unattended for an unknown period of time."

"We offered a 4-day suspension without pay. She will have to report to the central office and she will not be around children the rest of the school year."

Toledo Police is now investigating, and based on their findings, more discipline could occur in this case.

No official charges have been filed against the teacher, which is why 13abc is not releasing her name.

Lucas County Children Services is also investigating.
