Pittsburgh police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Daishonta Marie Williams after being accused of throwing a brick at her daughter’s teacher, 46-year-old Janice Davis Watkins.

Williams was charged with aggravated assault, stalking, terroristic threats, and recklessly endangering another person.

26-year-old Vincent Beasley was charged with aggravated assault, stalking, and conspiracy after being involved in the attack.

According to the police investigation, Williams’ 9-year-old daughter attends the Martin Luther King Jr. PreK-8 School.

Watkins confiscated the girl’s cell phone because she used it during class.

The girl tried to get the phone back and bit Watkins.

While Watkins was trying to drive to the hospital to be treated for the bite, she was confronted by Beasley and Williams.

Williams then allegedly threw a brick at Watkins.

The mother then called the teacher a “bit**.”

Watkins was taken to the Allegheny General Hospital, where she is said to be in stable condition.

Williams demanded police arrest the teacher for taking away her daughter’s cell phone.

So far, no charges have been filed against the teacher.
