Investigators say the incident occurred on Nov. 1 or Nov. 4 inside a classroom during school hours.

They say the student was not injured during the incident, and it was only recently reported.

Agyeman’s bond was set at $5,000.

A parent of a student at Rippon Middle School told FOX 5 that an email from administrators said Agyeman would be placed on leave.
