Uniontown police Officer Michael Garrow Sr. said the female officer sustained a concussion when the boy hit her in the back of her head and the girl struck her in the nose and mouth. In addition, the officer sustained cuts and bruises on her face.
The security officer, who routinely rides the bus, was attempting to separate the boy and girl as they fought with one another at 2:40 p.m. Jan. 7 on a Uniontown Area School District bus headed home from Lafayette Elementary-Middle School.
The officer was treated at Uniontown Hospital after the attack and missed two days of work, Garrow said.
Garrow on Tuesday charged the two as juveniles with aggravated assault on a school official and disorderly conduct.
