DETROIT (AP) - Two men have been arraigned in an attack on a substitute teacher at a high school in Detroit.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says a judge on Monday set bond for 29-year-old Cleveland Moore and 27-year-old Alonzo Griffin at $25,000 each.

A Dec. 19 preliminary examination has been scheduled.

Moore and Griffin are charged with felonious and aggravated assault following an attack Friday afternoon at Central Collegiate Academy on the city’s west side.

Lorenzo Morris says he was attacked outside a classroom after he had words earlier in the day with another teacher when he scolded her unruly students.

Morris says that teacher’s husband and an acquaintance later arrived at the school. One of the men had a tool used to scrape paint. Morris suffered cuts to his ear, head and face.

The school is operated by the Education Achievement Authority, Michigan’s turnaround district for low-performing public schools.

A spokesman for the Education Achievement Authority says Friday was the final day at Central for the female teacher who had already taken a job at another school district.

She has not been charged.

Court records did not show any lawyers for Moore and Griffin.
