Four Mt. Healthy school employees have been assaulted by female students in just two days, authorities said.

Now, police are issuing a warning for students and parents: Assaulting a school employee is a felony.

The four alleged assaults happened during two separate incidents on Monday and Tuesday.

Officials with the Mt. Healthy Police Department said they were called the Mt. Healthy High School Monday for reports of a fight. During the fight — between two girls — police say that two school administrators were assaulted.

The following day, investigators said the same thing happened in the high school hallway, this time injuring the school’s principal and a security guard.

The severity of all four of those injuries is unknown.

In a Facebook post, police warned of the severity of these crimes.

“Parents, please let your students know the Ohio Legislators have enacted a provision within the Ohio Revised Code, Section 2903-13 – Assault, which makes it a felony to assault a teacher or school employee. In addition, depending on the age of the assailant, and the situation leading up to the assault, Mount Healthy Police will make every attempt to have the involved juvenile charged as an adult,” the post reads.

Officials with the department say there is zero tolerance when addressing assaults on school employees.

WLWT is working on learning more and will update this story as details develop.
