BALTIMORE, Md. - A Baltimore school tutor has been arrested, fired after being accused of throwing a 7-year-old boy against a wall, leaving him with a fractured jaw and two missing teeth.
The boy’s mother, Lateekqua Jackson said she went to her son’s school on Monday to pick him up and found her son injured.
Trayvon suffered a fractured jaw, two missing teeth and another tooth pushed into his gums. That trauma was allegedly sustained by a city school tutor while the child was at City Springs Elementary located at 100 S. Caroline Street in Baltimore.
The school’s tutor told police he physically removed Trayvon from class for being disruptive. As he was carrying the child out, he lost his footing, and Trayvon hit himself on the wall. His mother doesn’t believe that story, "he can't throw himself into the wall and fracture his jaw and loose his teeth. He's only seven years old. He's so small he's not going to do the damage to himself," she said.
Officials launched an investigation and on Wednesday Baltimore Police announced that the incident had been captured on video.
“After viewing the video and examining all other evidence, detectives concluded that a crime had been committed and an arrest warrant was obtained,” police wrote in a release on Wednesday afternoon.
