Bleach thrown at officer during fight at NE Baltimore school

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A school police officer and hall monitor were hurt when a student threw bleach at them during a fight at a northeast Baltimore school Tuesday.

The incident happened at Reginald F. Lewis/Achievement Academy/Success Academy, near Perring Parkway and Northern Parkway, confirmed a Baltimore City Public Schools spokesperson.

The officer, who was assigned to the school, was breaking up a fight at Achievement Academy when an 18-year-old student threw bleach in his eyes, said spokesperson Edie House Foster in a statement.

"The bleach also splattered in the eyes of a hall monitor and on the clothes of a student," she said. "A paramedic team treated the officer and hall monitor on the scene; the student did not require treatment."

"Both the officer and hall monitor were subsequently transported to hospital, where they received further treatment and were released," she said in the statement. "Both are expected to recover fully."

The student will be charged as an adult, with three counts of first-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
