The family of a 7-year-old Baltimore boy said this week that their son was assaulted by an educator at his elementary school.

Lateekqua Jackson and Trayvon Grayson Sr. told WBAL-TV that their son, Trayvon Grayson, was assaulted on Monday at City Springs Elementary/Middle School.

“My son told me that [the teacher] threw my son into a wall,” Jackson explained. “My son had dreams about it all last night. He’s still shaking in his sleep, saying that he keeps having visions of [the teacher] throwing him into a wall.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Jackson told WJZ that her son’s jaw was broken and that two of his teeth were missing.

The teacher was identified as 25-year-old Timothy Randall Korr, an employee of the Baltimore Curriculum Project charter operation. The educator said that he was taking the 7 year old to the principal’s office for disrupting class when the incident occurred.

“The teacher told me that he put him over his shoulder, and when he put him down he was bleeding,” Jackson recalled. “That’s it. How can you tell somebody like that? He said he made a mistake. He said, ‘I made a mistake. It was a mistake.’ That’s what he said.”

After examining school security footage, child abuse detectives obtained a warrant for Korr’s arrest.

The Baltimore Curriculum Project revealed on Wednesday that Korr had been fired.

“We are heartsick that this child suffered this injury,” the group said in a statement. “We pray for his complete and quick recovery and for his family as well.”

Korr was booked on charges of 1st and 2nd degree child abuse, 1st and 2nd degree assault, reckless endangerment and neglect of a minor.

At Tuesday's coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was pressed on whether he really has the authority to force governors to allow houses of worship to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.

The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.

"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."

Mason refused to do so, at which point Trump mocked him, saying "You want to be politically correct."

Trump also repeated a line previously made by his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, asking why former Vice President Joe Biden wore a mask when he was in public but not standing close to anyone, when he wasn't wearing a mask at home with his wife right next to him.
