ST. PAUL - Police are investigating another report that a student assaulted a teacher at a St. Paul high school.

Teachers were breaking up a fight between two female students in a Johnson Senior High School classroom about 11 a.m. on March 4 when a male student struck one of the teachers in the head from behind, according to Sgt. Mike Ernster, a St. Paul police spokesman, about a report filed Friday.

The teacher, identified as John Fischbach, was not injured, Ernster said. Fischbach teaches students with emotional and behavioral disabilities.

The 16-year-old student denied he hit Fischbach in the head and said he didn’t like how a student was being treated, according to Ernster. He was not arrested, but the police report was made to document the incident for possible criminal charges, Ernster said.
