BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Baltimore City school police are filing assault charges after a secretary was attacked at a south Baltimore elementary school.
The incident happened early Tuesday morning at Westport Elementary School.
"A school secretary was attempting to keep a man from entering the building before school hours when she was pushed in her upper body," explained Baltimore City Public Schools spokesperson Edie House-Foster.
"The man reportedly fled the scene. The matter remains under investigation. School police will be filing assault charges," she said via email.
Assaults against Baltimore City teachers or school personnel have recently been reported at Polytechnic Institute, Frederick Douglass High and Success Academy, prompting the Baltimore Teachers Union to launch a safety task force.
