A little boy from Michigan says his teachers put tape over his mouth and threw away his lunch and he says he was told not to tell anyone about what happened.

Abdul Dannaoui said it happened back on March 26 at Highview Elementary School, WXYZ reported.

He said it didn’t happen only once either. Abdul told his parents and WXYZ that he has been prevented from eating lunch and his snack up to 10 times.

“I’m emotionally heartbroken. Disappointed. That’s his second home. That’s how they treat a child with asthma?” his mother Hoda said to WXYZ.

School officials told WXYZ that the taping incident happened at Great Start Readiness Program at Cherry Hill Baptist Church and that it was a substitute teacher assistant who scotch-taped Abdul’s mouth shut. The person no longer works at the school.

The Dannaouis have filed a police report and are considering legal action against the district, WXYZ reported.

They say a second adult was in the room at the time. That teacher is still working for the district. The family’s attorney, Nabih Ayad, told WXYZ, “One of the teachers was discharged. But, they kept the other teacher who said don’t tell your mom or dad, and even gave him a bracelet to entice him not to tell anyone.”

Abdul is changing schools after the incident.

JUST IN: Dayton’s most awarded chef is headed to Florida

Published: Tuesday, April 24, 2018 @ 7:56 AM

Chef Anne Kearney to continue her culinary career in the Tampa area.

The Dayton area’s only James Beard Foundation award-winning chef is headed for Florida — for now, anyway.

“So sorry, sweet city of Dayton, but I am leaving town August 2018. Not forever, but for now,” Former Rue Dumaine chef and co-owner Anne Kearney wrote in an email to followers.

Kearney, who has served as a private chef and hosted some “pop-up” events at other restaurants in recent months, said she will “join a few comrades in a restaurant group with the promise of an exciting next chapter of my culinary journey. Of course, more details will follow as I better define this move. Until then I am available to create a personal meal for you and yours or aid you in creating a fantastic dining experience/event for a larger group.”

The former Rue Dumaine, at 1061 Miamisburg-Centerville Road in Washington Twp., shut down permanently in July 2017 after a decade-long run. The restaurant changed its name to Bar Dumaine shortly before shutting down.

Kearney is the Dayton area’s most highly credentialed chef, based on her recognition by the James Beard Foundation, whose awards are regarded as the nation’s most prestigious recognition program for the food and beverage business — the equivalent of the Academy Awards of the restaurant industry.

In February 2016, the Beard Foundation for the sixth consecutive year named Kearney a semifinalist for its “Best Chefs in America” competition for the Great Lakes region. Kearney was the only chef from the Dayton area, and one of only three in Ohio, to be named in 2016.

 The Beard Foundation recognized the restaurant itself in 2008, naming Rue Dumaine a semifinalist for the foundation’s “Best New Restaurant” in the nation. And Kearney was named a James Beard Foundation best-chef award winner in the southeastern U.S. in 2002 when she co-owned the highly regarded Peristyle restaurant in New Orleans.

A victim of a common scam was too embarrassed to go on camera, but his mother, Lisa Thomas, was not. She wanted others to know his story.

Like usual with this con, an alleged scammer called, said he was an IRS official, told the victim he owed money, and threatened to arrest him if he didn’t pay right away.

“They wanted him to go to Target and purchase iTunes gift cards. $4,000 worth. $100 each,” Thomas told WSOC.

And he did. “Because he heard jail. I’m going to jail,” she said. “He has learned a valuable, costly, very expensive lesson.”

Viewers tell WSOC almost daily that an IRS imposter calls. WSOC called the alleged scammer back. Here are excerpts from the conversation:

Jason Stoogenke: “Obviously you’re not with the IRS.”

Stoogenke: “How much money are you trying to scam out of people?”

Caller: “Just $8,000 sir.”

Stoogenke: “So you’re trying to scam $8,000? You’re admitting that to me right now?”

Caller: “uh huh. Uh huh.”

Stoogenke: “I’m a TV news reporter and I’m going to put you on the air.”

Stoogenke: “Do you have anything to say for yourself?”

Caller: “Go [expletive] yourself.”

Stoogenke: “Maybe you should stop scamming people.”

Caller: “No. Why should I?” 

Stoogenke: “Honestly, how often does this work?” 

Caller hangs up.

North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein says victims in the state lost $85,930 to this scam since this time last year. 

The IRS will not call you, threaten to arrest you, and ask you to pay over the phone using any kind of gift card or prepaid debit card.

Police began their investigation when they were flagged down by two women standing on a sidewalk in front of a home on the 800 block of East Street, according to a police affidavit filed with the charges.

“Officers exited the vehicle to see what was going on when the defendant, later identified as Jasen L. Fleming, exited the vehicle and took off on foot southbound behind the residence,” the affidavit says.

Officers gave chase and eventually caught up with him, the affidavit says. The officers returned to the women, the affidavit says, and were told that the three had been in the same car along with a baby.

They said the driver and Fleming got into an argument during which he demanded she pull the car over, but she refused.

“(The driver) advised at this time Mr. Fleming began to grab the wheel as she was driving, causing her to lose control of the vehicle while still in motion,” the report says.

The driver was able to pull the car safely to the curb, the report says.

A witness who was in the car said Fleming also grabbed the driver by her throat during the argument, the affidavit says.
