Witnesses: Parents Attack Students at Philadelphia Elementary School

Two parents entered the school and touched off a brawl, injuring 10 students, two teachers, and a school police officer.

Fox 29 has an incredible report from the Jay Cooke Elementary School: Yesterday parents entered the school and witnesses say they attacked 10 students, two teachers and a school police officer. The parents got in to the school, Dave Schratwieser reports, by saying they were there to attend an assembly for honor roll students.

“It is a shock when you hear about adults basically breaking into a school and making their way to a classroom to assault minors,” School District spokesman Fernando Gallard told Fox 29, obviously.


Police say they know the identities of the two adults and one teenager who started the fight.
