A tutor at a Baltimore school slammed a 7-year-old boy against a wall, leaving the child with injuries his parents report will require surgery, police said Wednesday.
The incident was recorded on school surveillance video and occurred Monday at City Springs Elementary/Middle School, authorities said.
Police spokesman T.J. Smith said at a news conference officers obtained warrants after reviewing the video.
Lateekqua Jackson, the boy’s mother, told WBAL-TV that her son is bruised, swollen, cut and is missing teeth.
“My son told me that (the tutor) threw my son into a wall,” Jackson said. “My son had dreams about it all last night. He’s still shaking in his sleep.”
“The teacher told me that he put him over his shoulder, and when he put him down he was bleeding,” Jackson said. “That’s it. How can you tell somebody like that? He said he made a mistake. He said, ‘I made a mistake. It was a mistake.’ That’s what he said.”
