A Baltimore County student was attacked inside a middle school bathroom, according to police.
An intruder entered Holabird Middle School and attempted to sexually assault the boy shortly before 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
But the attack was thwarted by a staff member who heard the boy yelling and went into the restroom.
A school police officer detained the stranger until county police arrived.
A county school spokesman says the student wasn't hurt.
School officials say Holabird keeps its outside doors locked during the day.
But staff members allowed students to come inside early on Thursday because of the cold weather.
The schools spokesman says the man arrested has a small build and is not much taller than an eighth-grader.
