Second teacher at Pittsburgh King PreK-8 school assaulted
After a pupil's mother allegedly threw a brick at a teacher's face last Wednesday, another teacher from the Pittsburgh King PreK-8 school on the North Side was assaulted on Tuesday.
Last week, a King schoolteacher was allegedly assaulted by parent Daishonta Williams, 29, of the North Side while sitting in her car in traffic near the West End Bridge.
Police said Williams believed the teacher tried to choke her daughter, who had allegedly bit the teacher when Watkins tried to take her cellphone.
Tuesday's incident involved a teacher and a student and caused the teacher to seek medical attention at Concentra Urgent Care, Trib partner WPXI-TV reports. The president of the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers verified the assault but did not know the extent of any injuries.
A meeting between the union president and Pittsburgh Public Schools was scheduled for Wednesday to discuss issues at the King school and safety measures.
Williams has been charged with stalking, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and reckless endangerment. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 2.
Williams' boyfriend, Vincent Beasley, 26, of the North Side, has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, stalking and conspiracy to commit stalking.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this story said Williams was released from jail. She has been in jail since the Oct. 18 incident. A judge revoked her bond on Wednesday morning.
