Police have charged a 21-year-old man who allegedly punched a teacher in the face at a King City school last month.
On Nov. 10, York Regional Police said an unknown man gained entry to King City Secondary School on King Road, east of Keele Street, just before 11:30 a.m.
The suspect walked around the first floor of the school before going up to the second floor, where he entered a classroom.
