A Gywnns Falls Elementary School staff member was assaulted as she entered the building early Tuesday, according to a Baltimore City public schools spokeswoman.
The staff member was assaulted by an unknown assailant at 6 a.m. at the school's main entrance. The attacker left the scene, and the staff member was taken to the hospital.
Spokeswoman Molly Rath said she could not release any information regarding the staff member's occupation, her injuries or what hospital she was transported to.
No students or other staff members were present for the assault, Rath said, and parents were notified about the incident via a phone call and letter.
The city school police department is handling the investigation.
