TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An 18-year-old student at an alternative school in Topeka is facing juvenile charges following an attack on a paraprofessional.

The incident happened Wednesday at Capital City School, which serves students with behavioral and emotional issues.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the victim, who is in her 60s, suffered rib and shoulder injuries when she was shoved against a wall. She remained hospitalized in intensive care Thursday.

The female student was booked into the Shawnee County jail on suspicion of aggravated battery and disorderly conduct. She was also reported to have struck another staff member while she was being taken into custody.
