ABaltimore City school tutor faces felony charges for slamming a second-grader into a wall on Monday, WBAL-TV reports.

Travon Grayson, 7, was hospitalized with facial injuries that will require surgery, several missing teeth and multiple bruises, his mother, Lateekqua Jackson told the news outlet.

Travon told his parents that the tutor, Timothy Korr, “threw” him into a wall.

“My son had dreams about it all last night,” Jackson said. “He’s still shaking in his sleep, saying that he keeps having visions of (Korr) throwing him into a wall.”

She stated that the incident occurred when Korr was taking Travon to the main office for misbehavior. When Jackson arrived at the school, her son was in an ambulance, and his blood was on Korr’s clothes.

The tutor offered her a ridiculous explanation but admitted to making “ mistake.”

Police investigators watched a surveillance video, which showed Korr slamming Travon and then the boy’s body going limp. After examining video and other evidence they concluded that Korr committed a crime.

Authorities issued multiple charges, including felony child abuse, felony assault, reckless endangerment and neglect of a minor.

“It’s never appropriate to inflict this type of harm on a child,” a police spokesman said, according to WBAL-TV.

Baltimore City schools released a statement saying it’s cooperating with the authorities and wishing Travon a quick recovery, but underscored that Korr is not an employee.

Korr, 25, was an employee of the Baltimore Curriculum Project, which said in a statement that it fired him.
