The student, who was a juvenile at the time of the attack, was in the cafeteria when the principal, Monica Fabre, asked her to leave the premises because she had been suspended and was not allowed at school. Fabre was walking the student to the door when the student grabbed the principal by the hair, pulled her to the ground and punched her in the face several times, causing a concussion and head trauma.

Harrison Education center is an alternative high school for students with severe emotional and behavioral needs.
