Waterloo police: School bus monitor assaulted boy

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A school bus monitor in Waterloo has been accused of assaulting an 11-year-old student during an altercation.

Police say 56-year-old Sandra Ann Shelby was arrested Monday on suspicion of causing bodily injury. Court records do not list an attorney.

Shelby is accused of striking the boy in the head Friday after his bus unloaded children. Court records say the boy was previously disciplined for causing a disturbance with another student on the bus.

After the bus unloaded, the boy is accused of trying to push Shelby and swinging a punch at her. Shelby is accused of pushing her thumbs into the student’s eyes. Police say the boy suffered minor injuries.

Durham Bus Services, which employs Shelby, says she has been placed on administrative leave.
