BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo man is facing charges for allegedly attacking a student and an elementary school employee last month, the Erie County DA’s office said Wednesday.
39-year-old Darnell McIntosh is accused of entering an office inside of an elementary school on the 200 block of Lawn Avenue on Sept. 26. It is alleged that he pushed a school employee to the ground and then allegedly pushed a child and then punching and kicking them.
He is charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of harassment. He was released on his own recognizance.
A temporary order of protection was issued for both victims and McIntosh was ordered to stay away from the school.
