The Washington High School teacher found the student washing his face in the bathroom on the campus, located at 38442 Fremont Blvd., when he pushed her and ran away, Fremont Police Department Detective Bill Veteran said.

A campus police officer found the boy at his home nearby, cuffed him and brought him to the principal's office while paperwork was being filled out, Veteran said.

However, the boy slipped out of one of the cuffs and ran away.

Police talked to the boy's father who convinced him to turn himself into the station, Veteran said.

The boy, who has been repeatedly suspended, was arrested for assaulting a teacher, resisting arrest and trespassing.
