Police charge student with assaulting guard


NAUGATUCK — A 12-year-old City Hill Middle School student was arrested last week after police say he assaulted a security guard at the school.

Police reported the student, whose name was not released due to his age, was yelling and swearing at school staff on the morning of Nov. 20. When a security officer approached him, police reported, the student punched her in the chest.

Police charged the student with third-degree assault and breach of peace. He was given a court date of Dec. 3 to appear at Waterbury Juvenile Court and released to his mother.
