Glen Ellyn police say they are investigating a report of a sixth-grader at Hadley Junior High striking an assistant principal because the 11-year-old boy did not want to stay after school.

School officials contacted police and reported the assault, which Deputy Police Chief Bill Holmer said took place about 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the school at 240 Hawthorne Blvd.

Holmer said the assistant principal and the sixth-grader were having a discussion about staying after school and the boy was "resistant to doing that." The boy is alleged to have struck the assistant principal, leaving some marks on her arm, Holmer said.

Police are speaking with others at the school who saw what happened to try to understand the circumstances. Holmer said no charges have been filed.
