Intruder enters Waukesha school, assaults office workers and parent
WAUKESHA — A spokesperson for the Waukesha School District says an unidentified man entered Lowell Elementary School on Tuesday morning, September 29th — but was stopped by office personnel.
A news release indicates the man entered the school just after 9 a.m. When questioned by two clerical staff members, the man then assaulted them — and then proceeded to exit the building. Before leaving the school property, the news release says the man assaulted a parent in the front entrance.
911 was called as the suspect fled the scene. Waukesha police responded immediately and apprehended the intruder.
The school district spokesperson says she is proud of the office staff at Lowell Elementary School for containing the intruder and teaching staff which quickly followed practices that they have learned via lock-down drills.
Waukesha Superintendent Todd Gray stated, “Students were never at any time accessible by this individual — nor were they aware that anything was happening.”
