Police: Franklin High Student Tries to Rob Teacher in Cafeteria

A Franklin High student attempted to rob a 58-year-old instructional assistant of money and jewelry, police said.

A 19-year-old student will be charged in an attempted robbery of a school employee that occurred during school hours on Tuesday, April 24, police said.

The student grabbed a 58-year-old female instructional assistant by the collar and pushed her against a wall in the school’s cafeteria at 11 a.m., said Lt. Stephen Doarnberger, assistant commander of the .

She demanded money and attempted to remove one of the woman's bracelets, but did not get any money or the bracelet, he said.

Charges will be filed in the incident, Doarnberger said.

Franklin High Principal Patrick McCusker said this is an isolated incident.

"We are dealing with [the student] appropriately following the Baltimore County Public Schools student handbook," he said. "...[It's] a one-time incident. As soon as we found out about it, we responded immediately."

It's sad that an isolated incident like this causes people to say negative things...unfortunately I think its human nature. I have lived in Reisterstown pretty much my whole life. My husband and I went to Franklin in the late 70's and our son attended in mid 2000. I worked with a WONDERFUL, DIVERSE community on many fundraising projects from 96-2007 through the Rec Council and the FHS Athletic Boosters! GREAT kids, administrators, teachers, coaches, parents and alumni whom without, many things would not have been accomplished in this area. FRANKLIN WAS and STILL IS one of the VERY BEST venues in the county. Students and families are VERY lucky to have the new Principal. Hopefully with his influence and experience and the backing and support of his staff, parents, students and alum -Franklin can continue to move in a positive direction. Honestly I read stories that take place in Carroll County, Howard County, Hartford County etc... the grass is NOT always greener..IMHO anyway....
