TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- An 18-year-old student at an alternative school in Topeka is facing juvenile charges following an attack on a paraprofessional.

The incident happened Wednesday at Capital City School, which serves students with behavioral and emotional issues.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1l3rdOe ) the victim, who is in her 60s, suffered rib and shoulder injuries when she was shoved against a wall. She remained hospitalized in intensive care Thursday.
