Pittsburgh, PA - A Pittsburgh Public School teacher was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon after being followed and then assaulted by the parents of one of her students.
The violent incident started as the teacher, age 46, was leaving her school, Martin Luther King Accelerated Learning Academy PreK-8.
Earlier on Wednesday, the teacher, whose name was not released, took a cell phone from a student in her class.
The student was using the cell phone in class, which is not allowed.
The student, who was not identified, told her parents, according to 'sources', and the student's mother told the teacher that they were going to "get even."
The student's parents were waiting on the teacher when she left the school.
The parents, who were not identified, followed the teacher in a black SUV. When she got near the West End Bridge, near the intersection of Route 65, the couple got out of the SUV and approached her.
The teacher was taken by ambulance to Allegheny General Hospital, where she is being treated for "facial injuries and lost teeth." She is listed in stable condition.
It's not known if the parents have been taken into custody.
No further details have been released.
