INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY: OKC student attacks teacher at school

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- An investigation is underway after police say a 12-year-old student attacked a teacher at a school in Oklahoma City.

According to authorities, the 12-year-old suffers from a behavioral disorder and had refused to wear his school uniform. According to court documents, he punched his teacher in the side of the face before punching and kicking out glass windows and ripping out a water fountain.

A police report says the teacher was unable to restrain the student due to a district policy.

"During this rampage the kid was on, when he broke one of the windows, he sustained a severe cut on the calf of one of his legs. That basically brought this action to an end," Sgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department explained.

The boy was taken to a hospital where he was treated before being released to his mother. She says the boy refused to take his medicine before going to school that day.

An investigation into the incident is underway.
