A man attacked two preschool teachers while they were taking about 30 toddlers for a walk in Northwest D.C. on Monday.
The teachers from Petit Scholars in Bloomingdale said the man asked them for money and punched them when they said no.
One of the teachers said the attack put her in the hospital.
One teacher said the attack put her in the hospital with a broken nose.
“He punched me like three times on the left side of my face,” she said. “That’s when I kind of lost conscious, and I wasn’t sure what to do or what was going on, because I was just worried about the kids’ safety.”
Several neighbors and construction workers rushed to help, the daycare said. Neighbor Alex Hilsabeck called 911.
