Police: Student, 13, Assaults Teacher At St. Paul School

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) -- For the second time in a week, authorities are investigating a report that a student assaulted a teacher in a St. Paul school.

Officials with the St. Paul School District and St. Paul Police Department say the latest incident happened on Wednesday. According to a report, a 13-year-old student assaulted a teacher at Journeys Secondary School.

It comes less than a week after two brothers were accused of assaulting a teacher and an assistant principal at St. Paul Central High School. In that incident, a 16-year-old student allegedly attacked a science teacher, slamming him against a wall and choking him before slamming the teacher to the floor after he tried to break up a fight.

Authorities say the teacher suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Wednesday's incident is under investigation by both St. Paul Public Schools and the St. Paul Police Department.
