Officials probe allegation of special educationt eacher assaulting student in Baldwin Park

BALDWIN PARK — Officials are investigating allegations of a county special education teacher assaulting a students last week at Sierra Vista High School, authorities said.
The incident was reported shortly before 1 p.m. Friday at the campus, 3600 N. Frazier Street, Baldwin Park School Police Capt. Jill Poe said.
“The allegation thus far is that an assault took place, teacher against student,” the captain said.
The class involved was a Los Angeles County-run special education class, officials said, and the student involved was a teenage boy estimated to be about 15 years old.
The investigation remained in it’s early stages Wednesday, as investigators had not yet spoken with the teacher, Poe said. It was too early to say whether an arrest was likely, she added, and investigators hoped to speak with him sometime this week.
Both the student and teacher had left the campus Friday when police arrived to investigate, authorities said.
The teacher had left due to an injury suffered in the incident, Poe said, while the student, who also suffered minor injuries, was picked up by a parent.
Poe said police were cautiously investigating and gathering evidence.
“Obviously, I want to do what’s best in the interest of all parties involved,” Poe said.
More information will be released as it becomes available, she said.
