An middle school teacher in Queens is charged with assaulting one of his students, the NYPD says.
Ramiro Cruz, 52, was arrested Wednesday at the Joseph Pulitzer School in Jackson Heights and charged with assault, police said.
A 13-year-old boy said Cruz grabbed a piece of paper from his hand and twisted his arm, authorities said.
The student suffered a swollen, sprained left middle finger, police said.
It was not immediately clear why the teacher allegedly twisted the student’s arm.
