Mom accused of assaulting 2 teens near school

BEDFORD, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio woman accused of punching two students outside a high school and taking a loaded gun onto school property has been charged with two counts of assault.

Police allege Falesia Clark went to Bedford High School on Monday to confront a teenage girl who apparently was involved in an online dispute with Clark's daughter. Police allege the 45-year-old Bedford woman punched the girl and another student who tried to intervene. They suffered minor injuries.

Police later found a pistol in Clark's purse.

She was charged with assault, trespassing and carrying a concealed weapon on school grounds. She was being held in jail on a $1 million bond.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday for her attorney.

Bedford is roughly 10 miles southeast of Cleveland.
