LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Police believe a 15-year-old high school student was high on LSD when he attacked and groped a female teacher, principal and secretary, according to reports.
The attacks didn’t stop after he was arrested and taken from the school, WFMJ Channel 21 reports. He kicked through the partition of a police cruiser and ended up kicking an officer in the head. After being taken to Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Downtown Hospital, police say he attacked a nurse and tried to strangle her with a stethoscope.
He also later told medical workers he was given the drugs by his dog.
The teen is charged with vandalism, resisting arrest, gross sexual imposition and assault in connection with the Jan. 16 incident at Liberty High School.
According to vindy.com, the school’s resource officer heard a teacher in the hallway yelling for help and saying “Do not touch me!” The officer saw the student run down the hallway and outside into a parking lot but was able to get him to stop.
The student reportedly was mumbling incoherently as he was taken to the school office. After being taken to a school medical area, the student is accused of pushing a school secretary against a wall and grabbing her breasts and buttocks.
The officer pulled the student off the secretary and tried to handcuff the male, but he broke free and then attacked and groped the school principal, WKBN Channel 27 reports.
Staff members helped the officer get the student under control and take him outside to a patrol car, where he reportedly kicked at the windows and eventually kicked down the partition, kicking an officer in the head.
The teen told officers and medical workers he had taken LSD, reports say. After being treated, was taken to the Trumbull County Juvenile Justice Center.
Liberty Township is located just north of Youngstown.
