Man attacks student at Decatur Central High School, injures two teachers

INDIANAPOLIS -- Two Decatur Central High School teachers and a student spent some time in the hospital on Monday after a man got into the school and tried to attack a student

A district spokesperson says anyone entering Decatur Central High School has to be buzzed through a locked door by an employee inside.  

Tyrese Little, 18, was buzzed into the school along with family members who had students who attend the high school. The school spokesperson said he was in the main office of the building when he saw a student that he had a problem with and went into the hall to confront him.

“I saw the wrestling coach try to stop him and he couldn’t really stop him and at that point, most of the teachers in that hallway had detained this person and got a hold of him and they had him in handcuffs,” said student Jayson Wagner. “The wrestling coach is a pretty big guy, and he couldn’t even stop him.”

A 16-year-old student and two teachers were injured and taken to the hospital to be treated.

The school was never placed on lockdown and Little did not have any weapons on him at the time of his arrest. The school spokesman says a school resource officer was nearby to help take little down.

Little is charged with battery resulting in bodily injury and battery against a public safety official.
