MESA, Ariz. -- An Arizona parent is facing charges after Mesa police say he walked into an elementary school and attacked a teacher in front of kindergartners.

KTVK-TV reports that Aaron Jermaine Byrd was arrested this week following the bizarre attack at Emerson Elementary in Mesa.

According to police, Byrd came to the school, yelled profanities and refused to sign in at the front office. The police report says the man then shoved his way into the classroom by pushing the teacher backward with his chest as she repeatedly asked him to "stop touching me."

Byrd faces a felony charge of assault on a school teacher.

It was unclear if he had an attorney.
