Ewing is not currently working for the high school.

“He is currently on leave, and we are awaiting the outcome of the investigation,” Northridge Superintendent Dave Jackson said.

Jackson said the district has not had any disciplinary concerns with Ewing, who has been high school principal for two years and has worked in the district for more than a decade.

Jackson said the high school’s assistant principal is serving as acting principal. Because of delays in the construction of Northridge’s new K-12 campus school, students won’t return until Sept. 23.

During the alleged assault, the woman said one of her teeth were chipped due to the assault, the report read.

According to the report, Ewing had reportedly been drinking the night the assault was said to have happened.

The woman also said she and Ewing had been arguing lately, a statement filed with the report read.

The woman said Ewing told her she “could have gotten worse.”  She also said he dared her to call the police about the incident.
