LARGO, Fla. (AP) -- An adult student at a Tampa Bay area tech school reportedly attacked a teacher and another student with a wooden bat.
Police say 32-year-old Wesley Lee Cox had the bat with him when he arrived at Pinellas Technical Education Center Monday morning. County school officials say Cox went to his class and attacked his teacher with the bat. Another student tried to help the teacher and was also struck.
Officials say the two victims were hospitalized as a precaution, but their injuries weren't considered life-threatening.
Pinellas County Schools spokeswoman Lisa Wolf told the Tampa Bay Times they were still trying to determine a motive for the attack.
Cox was charged with two counts of aggravated battery. He was being held on $20,000 bail.
