A Pittsburgh mother allegedly followed her daughter's teacher, hit her with a brick, dragged her out of her vehicle and beat her over a discussion about the child's cellphone Wednesday.

Police told the Pittsburgh Gazette that Williams had threatened the teacher earlier in the day after she was called in for a parent-teacher conference. Authorities say she was being followed by a couple in a SUV, and when she stopped at an intersection the woman threw a brick at her. Police say the couple then pulled Watkins out of her auto and continued to assault her. Watkins was hospitalized with facial injuries and a lost tooth. Williams then followed Watkins from the school and allegedly attacked her on West End Bridge.

While mother and teacher were meeting, the girl claimed that Watkins had choked her.

In the assault incident, Watkins told police that Williams got out and threw a brick before hitting her in the face and beating her.

Around 3:15 p.m., Watkins sat at a busy intersection when Williams approached her auto, said Pittsburgh Police.

"Her head is hurting real bad, her face on the one side is swollen", said David.

After the attack, police arrested Daishonta Marie Williams, 29, and charged her with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, stalking and terroristic threats.

Zlatan expected back by end of the year
Both have documented their recovery on social media, but Mourinho was only able - or willing - to offer a timescale on Ibrahimovic.

Cellphones are forbidden in the school district.

Janice Watkins, 46, was identified by her adult children as the teacher who was attacked.

"We are deeply troubled by the violent act against a teacher of the Pittsburgh Public Schools that occurred on the West End Bridge yesterday afternoon, and we are now cooperating with the City of Pittsburgh Police Department's investigation". Her boyfriend wasn't charged.

The Pittsburgh Public School District released a written statement Thursday noting that "violence of any kind against a PPS staff member or citizen is unacceptable, and the individuals responsible must be held accountable for such horrifying behavior", the station said. After she was hit, she says the woman opened her door, dragged her out into the road and began punching and kicking her. Investigators said that she denied using a brick and claimed to have punched her.

"My heart goes out to the child, because what has that mother taught that child? I'm going to do this right, do it the right way", she said.

The student allegedly responded by biting Watkins on her arm, KDKA reported.

Police tell FOX6 the teacher's injuries were not life threatening.
