A 14-year-old Hamden girl was arrested Monday after she attacked her teacher at ACES, where she attends school, according to police.
Hamden Police received a report of an assault at the alternative education center at 205 Skiff St. at about 11:15 a.m., according to police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
"Investigation revealed that a 14 year-old female student pushed an adult staff member and then ran into a teacher’s homeroom class," Smith said. "The 14 year-old then proceeded to physically assault the 55 year-old teacher numerous times with a closed fist. Another staff member eventually removed the student from the classroom."
The 14 year-old Hamden resident was charged with third-degree assault and second-degree breach of Peace, Smith said, and is scheduled to appear in court on March 23.
It's the second time in a month a teenage girl has been arrested for attacking a teacher. A student at the Children's Center was charged last month.
