A student and teacher from two separate schools are recovering from two separate assaults Wednesday.
A high school student bumped into someone she was feuding with on the 1100 block of Kent Street. That person threw the girl to the ground, punched her several times, and then ran away. The victim regained consciousness and walked back to school. The nurse treated her for minor injuries. No word on if the assailant was tracked down by Elkhart police.
Then, at 3:10 p.m. Wednesday, a 13-year-old boy was arrested by Elkhart police after allegedly assaulting a teacher at Hawthorne Elementary. The teacher approached the student, who had apparently violated the school’s cell phone policy. The boy became aggressive and grabbed the teacher’s arm, giving her bruises. The boy was separated from the teacher by the time police and his father arrived.
