Violence At Annapolis High School

| October 10, 2009, 04:46 PM | 2 Comments

Student Reportedly Thrown Over Railing

UPDATE: See response from Anne Arundel County Police Department below.

UPDATE 2: See response from Anne Arundel County Public Schools

We have received several reports of an attack on a student yesterday at Annapolis High School.  While some of the precise details differ, the incident appears to be described accurately by three sources.

During the afternoon of October 9, 2009, a student was attacked in a stairwell of the school. The student was either thrown down the steps or over a railing and became unconscious (see clarification by AACPS below) when the attacker approached the victim and kicked him (or her) in the head. The injured student was reportedly transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center for emergency surgery (see clarification by AACPS below).

At this time, we have inquiries into the Anne Arundel County Schools as well as the Anne Arundel County Police Department for additional details. Stay tuned for more information.

Update from Anne Arundel County Police Department: Our officers did respond to an altercation at the school in the early afternoon hours. I can confirm that there was a fight in a stairwell, but do not have information to substantiate a fall down the steps. A juvenile male was transported to AAMC and our department has identified a possible suspect in the incident. The incident is still under investigation.

Update from Anne Arundel County Public Schools: There was an altercation yesterday afternoon between two students. That incident is still under investigation, as police have indicated in your online report. A suspect has been identified. The information I have indicates an ambulance was called because the student was dazed. I don’t have any information that indicates the student was unconscious.

School officials have been in contact with the student’s family today. He is home. There was no surgery.

    The aggressor in this attack attended school yesterday. I am outraged that he was not suspended. Can anyone confirm that there were no charges levied in this assault? My child was a witness to this attack. The victim was only able to cover his face before being stomped on and then thrown against the railing and smacking down on the floor. The victim was not able to defend himself, and when the aggressor ran away, my child knelt down to help the victim, who did not respond when asked if he was ok. Other witnesses agree that the victim was briefly unconcious.

    Don’t be fooled by all of the “glowing” reports about Annapolis High School. My kid goes there and it is absolute chaos. If the administration doesn’t allow teachers to write up referrals then there is nothing negetive to report to the state and everything looks wonderful. This is what the board wants the public to believe. Unless you are in honors or the IB program it is “thug city”.
