LOS ANGELES, Calif.--A woman and her two daughters could face assault and battery charges for allegedly fighting with a teacher at John Muir Middle School.
The alleged attack on the campus at 5929 S. Vermont Ave. occurred about 9 a.m. Wednesday in a hallway, Monica Carazo of the Los Angeles Unified School District said.
Kiki Fowler, 33, and one of her daughters were arrested on suspicion of felony battery on school grounds with injury, Carazo said. Her other daughter was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Carazo said.
The names of the daughters were withheld because they are juveniles. One is a student at John Muir, Carazo said.
Fowler was being held on $20,000 bail, according to the sheriff's department.
The three went to the school about 9 a.m. Wednesday, checked in at the office, then went to the special-education teacher's classroom, where they attacked her in the hallway, Carazo said.
What motivated the fight was not disclosed. It was unclear what kind of injuries the teacher may have suffered, but Carazo said she sought treatment yesterday and did not come to work today. Her name was withheld.
