MUNHALL, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania school security guard who allegedly “initiated aggression” against a student has been fired and could face criminal charges.

Steel Valley School District Superintendent Edward Wehrer released a statement Tuesday about the incident between the guard - who has not been publicly identified - and a Steel Valley Middle School student on Monday. The district’s contracted security firm fired the guard.

The statement says “a security guard initiated aggression against one of our students” during an incident in the cafeteria, adding, “Such behavior is unacceptable.”

The district has not released a detailed description of the incident, but has referred the matter to Munhall police.

Police Chief Patrick Campbell expects to file criminal charges against the guard. It was not immediately clear whether that had happened by Wednesday morning.
