A school teacher has been taken to jail for harming a 6-year old child. Mildred Russ, 65, was arrested after a little girl’s mother said that Russ dragged her across a playground on Monday. The officers with the Baker Police Department studied the child’s clothing and determined that her story is likely true.
"She tied my jacket around my neck and she dragged me to the playground to the office," said Kiya Rogers.
When the girl’s mother, Jessica Rogers, went to the police station to pick up the child’s uniform, there were holes in it. Her shorts also had grass stains. The mother is also upset because school officials didn’t tell her what happened until Wednesday.
"What were you doing before she did this?" the little girl was asked. "I was talking in the classroom, but we started walking to the lunch room," Kiya answered.
"But, that does not give anybody a right to do that to her," said Jessica Rogers. "She's only six years old. She should not have experienced anything like that."
Police Chief Mike Knaps said that he’s known the school teacher for years, and was shocked.
"There is no valid excuse to take such action against a child," said Knaps. "I'm in my 31st year with the police department and I've never been witness to anything like this before."
