Man entered class, hurt children, guardians say

BOISE, Idaho — The guardian of a northern Idaho fifth-grader was upset Thursday with a school’s response after she says a man entered a classroom, harassed and assaulted children, and put her grandson in a chokehold.

Jerry Peery said other parents in the small, rural town of Craigmont called police after hearing what happened from their children after classes let out Monday. She said school staff should have contacted ­authorities immediately.
