SPRINGVILLE, N.Y. — A Springville man is charged with assault after the Erie County District Attorney's Office says he attacked a teacher outside of Springville Middle School.

Erie County District Attorney John Flynn says that 52-year-old Shawn Connors repeatedly punched the teacher in the face while a child was watching on March 25. He says the teacher fell and had injuries to his face and knees.

Connors is due back in court May 20 to face charges of second-degree assault, third-degree criminal trespass, and child endangerment.

He could face seven years in prison if he is convicted.
