West Carrollton school employee focus of student assault allegation

A West Carrollton City School District worker is the focus of an assault allegation lodged by the father of a Moraine elementary school student.

Marcus Harrison said he filed a police report Sunday, alleging a CF Holliday Elementary School intervention specialist on Friday grabbed his daughter by the arm after she said the child stole her snack.

The specialist “grabbed her by her arm and basically squeezed her arm until she started crying,” Harrison said.

This news organization is not identifying the specialist, who has not been charged.

West Carrollton Superintendent Andrea Townsend said the school district is investigating the issue.

“Her job is to work with special needs children,” Harrison said. “If she can lose her temper on one special needs child, it’s my opinion I don’t think she needs to be working with kids.”

This news organization requested a copy of Moraine police records filed Sunday involving a report of an assault at an address matching CF Holliday’s location. Police did not release the report, saying the case involved child abuse.
