The state Department of Children and Family Services is investigating, too.

No charges have been filed, nor has any disciplinary action been taken against the teacher.

The teacher was placed on leave until the investigation is complete as a matter of procedure, Assistant Superintendent Mark Ostap said.

Ostap was not aware of any prior complaints of physical violence involving the teacher.

Antioch Police Chief Craig Somerville confirmed detectives are investigating, but he declined to comment on the specifics of the case.

"We're talking to everybody involved," Somerville said.
