YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — An East High School student was booked into the Mahoning County jail after reports said he hit a female student Monday with a chair.
Elias Rodriguez, 18, is expected to be arraigned Wednesday in municipal court.
A deputy for the county Sheriff’s Office who works school security wrote in a report that he heard a student crying and then saw a student being carried away for medical attention.
Witnesses told the deputy that Rodriguez was in a class with the female student and she was “commenting” on him when he hit her with a chair.
A fellow student stopped Rodriguez from hitting the student again, reports said.
The student received medical attention from school staff, according to reports.
