NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A teacher at a Manhattan high school was facing charges Tuesday morning after being accused of attacking one of his students.

Police said 50-year-old Jose Garcia of Queens was arrested Monday after he pulled a chair out from under a 15-year-old boy and then used a desk to pin him against a wall.

The incident happened Friday at the West End Secondary School on 61st Street.

Garcia is charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

The Department of Education said Garcia has been removed from the classroom pending the investigation.
