A student at Vincennes Lincoln High School is accused of beating a female teacher semiconscious Wednesday, and that the educator was taken to Evansville for medical treatment.
The teacher was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital and later transferred to an undisclosed hospital in Evansville. As of Thursday afternoon, the teacher was still in the trauma intensive care unit.
The 16-year-old boy, was taken to the Vincennes Police Department for questioning and processing, then later transported to the Southwest Indiana Regional Youth Village, a treatment center for at-risk youth in Vincennes.
Police say their investigation is ongoing and at this time are requesting that the student be charged with attempted murder, robbery, battery with serious bodily injury, criminal confinement and strangulation.
Officials with the Vincennes Community School Corporation say that it would be inappropriate to comment further until the police investigation is complete.
