San Mateo County sheriff's deputies arrested a San Mateo man on Tuesday in connection with a November attack on a Woodside High School teacher.
Lamarr Timmons, 19, was arrested for allegedly punching the teacher on Nov. 5 near Alameda De Las Pulgas and Hull Avenue, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
The incident happened just after school let out as the teacher, whose name is being withheld for his safety, was walking home from school. He came upon a group of teenagers, one of whom was "acting aggressively and swearing at everyone who walked by," according to a Sheriff's Office report.
The teacher attempted to calm the young man but the man punched the teacher in the mouth and knocked him to the ground, the report said. The teacher required oral surgery to correct the damage, which included one tooth knocked out and another loosened, the report said.
The arrest of Mr. Timmons came after a two-month investigation involving several witness interviews and cooperation from the Woodside High School community.
Mr. Timmons was already in custody at the Maguire Correctional Facility on unrelated charges, deputies said. He was re-booked today on a variety of felony assault charges.
