A New Bedford elementary school teacher is on paid leave after a parent told police she assaulted her son in class.

Police are investigating an incident at the Devalles School.

A parent told police the teacher grabbed her 9–year–old son's hoodie from behind, causing the strings to tighten around his neck.

She also claims the teacher grabbed her child's face and yelled at him.

The teacher hasn't been charged with anything at this time. DCF spokeswoman Cayenne Isaksen says the agency has received a complaint and is investigating the incident.
