A 15-year-old high school freshman at Roosevelt High School in Fresno, California, is facing a felony assault charge after videos surfaced that appear to show her attacking a substitute teacher (video below).

The girl, who has not been identified due to her age, reportedly attacked a substitute teacher on Sept. 4 after he asked the class to put away their cellphones. 

The attack was captured on a cellphone camera by another student and shared on social media.

"She hit him really hard," Lt. Joe Gomez with the Fresno Police Department said, reports Your Central Valley. "It's the type of punch that can knock somebody out."

According to Gomez, after the substitute teacher asked students to put their phones away, one student refused and tried to plug the phone in to charge in the front of the room. The teacher unplugged the phone and the student reportedly punched him in the head.

The teacher then walked out of the room, but the student reportedly followed him out and continued to punch and scratch him, reports The Fresno Bee.

Police were called to the school soon after and the student was arrested.

The 15-year-old is now facing a felony assault charge as well as two misdemeanor counts of disturbing the peace.
