Teacher and students in trouble for gym class attack

PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

A teacher and several students are facing charges after another student is bullied and attacked in gym class.

The incident took place on February 28 at Parma Senior High School.

The victim is a 14-year-old developmentally challenged student.

According to police, during gym class, a 14 year-old male repeatedly threw a volleyball at the victim from close range, striking him on the head.

Enough force was used that the victim eventually fell to the floor.

A 13-year-old female was seen laughing and encouraging the bullying and assault on the victim. The disoriented victim staggered back to his feet, at which point the female kicked him in the groin, causing him to fall to the floor again.

A substitute teacher walked over to the victim, who was still lying on the floor. 

The teacher dispersed the group of students who had gathered around to watch before walking over to another corner of the gym to continue instructing class while the victim was still face down on the floor.

The teacher remained in the gym while another pair of male students approached the victim and began sliding into the victim as he was still lying on the floor. A 14-year-old male also dragged the victim face down by his feet across the gym floor. A 15 -year-old male juvenile and a 13-year-old male squatted over the victim and simulated obscene acts near the victim's head while he lay motionless on the gym floor.

The teacher was cited for endangering children, a misdemeanor of the first degree. Two male juveniles and one female were charged with assault. The other two male juveniles were charged with disorderly conduct.

Parma Police say the case is still under investigation and additional charges are possible after speaking with prosecutors.
