BellefontainePolice Patch

Jeffery A. Ward, 16, of Kenton, was charged Monday afternoon with four delinquency counts of felonious assaults for allegedly biting a school nurse and assaulting three teachers at Mac-A-Cheek Learning Center, 1130 W. Sandusky Ave.

A teacher told officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department that she took Jeffery into a seclusion room to discuss inappropriate sexual comments he was making aloud. He became enraged and began punching a desk and wall.

Other teachers heard the commotion and responded to the room. He threw a chair, lunged at the teacher, struck her and ripped a paper towel dispenser from a wall.

The nurse and a teacher were bitten by the student and another teacher was struck in the head while trying to restrain the teen.

Officers took him into custody and lodged him in the Logan County Juvenile Detention Center.
