BALTIMORE (AP) — A tutor at a Baltimore school slammed a 7-year-old boy against a wall, leaving the child with injuries his parents report will require surgery, police said Wednesday.
The incident was recorded on school surveillance video and occurred Monday at City Springs Elementary/Middle School, authorities said.
Police spokesman T.J. Smith said at a news conference officers obtained warrants after reviewing the video.
The child was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Lateekqua Jackson, the boy’s mother, told WBAL-TV that her son is bruised, swollen, cut and is missing teeth.
“My son told me that (the tutor) threw my son into a wall,” Jackson said. “My son had dreams about it all last night. He’s still shaking in his sleep.”
Timothy Randall Korr, 25, of Baltimore, the tutor, was arrested Wednesday and charged with child abuse, assault, reckless endangerment and neglect of a minor. He was at Baltimore Central Booking and Intake Center awaiting a hearing before a court commissioner.
It could not immediately be determined if Korr has a lawyer.
School officials said in a statement that Korr worked for Baltimore Curriculum Project, a contractor. Korr has been fired, a spokesman for the project said.
