A Florida teacher was hospitalized after allegedly being attacked by a couple of four- and five-year-old pupils in her classroom.

The youngsters who attend Pines Lakes Elementary in Pembroke Pines were said to have thrown objects and flipped chairs in the classroom before purportedly attacking the unidentified teacher using their fists and feet.

The alleged assault occurred in the ‘cool down’ room at the elementary school shortly after 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Local 10 reported. 

According to a police report, an officer who responded to the attack found the teacher sitting on the ground and feeling ‘faint,’ ‘weak and dazed.’ 

The five-year-old student faces the possibility of being charged with aggravated assault and battery with hands, fists and feet.

A police report from the Pembroke Pines PD details how two pupils, ages four and five began throwing things and flipping chairs in class , The teacher was found sitting against the wall and said to be coughing and ‘faint’

By the time paramedics arrived at the school, the teacher was completely unresponsive

The police report describes how the teacher started coughing and dry heaving.

By the time paramedics arrived at the school, the teacher was unresponsive. 

Fire Rescue personnel brought the teacher out of the classroom on a stretcher in order to take her Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. 

As other staff members attempted to restore order, they heard the teacher in the room with the five-year-old. 

The woman ‘advised on the school radio that she needed support,’ according to the police report. 

Pembroke Pines police spokesperson Amanda Conwell told the Miami Herald ‘no weapon or object was involved in the battery,’ adding that ‘the victim is conscious and cooperating with police.’

The incident is being treated as an ‘active criminal investigation,’ the newspaper stated.

There have been no arrests, and police said that charges may be unlikely due to the ages of the children, according to WSVN.

In Florida, there is no statute specifying any minimum age for arrest, which means there is nothing legally preventing a preschooler, even two-and-a-half-years old, from being arrested. 

Last year, a Florida House panel approved a proposed bill to establish a minimum arrest age of seven years old, but the bill failed to become law.

Twenty two states have minimum arrest ages ranging from six years old in North Carolina to 12 years old in California and Michigan. 

Most states will not arrest or charge anyone under the age of eight. 

Children between the ages of 10 and 12 are not usually sent to jail except for rare cases involving major offenses.
