PORT ORANGE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35)
A man is behind bars, accused of throwing an eighth-grader to the ground before school Wednesday morning.
Volusia county deputies arrested Jayzel Andrew Hendrieth, 28, after the incident at Silver Sands Middle School in Port Orange. A janitor at the school tells deputies that he saw Hendrieth grab the girl in a bear hug and throw her down. Deputies do not believe this was an attempted abduction.
Hendrieth is being charged with child abuse and violation of probation on a past attempted first-degree murder. He is set to make his first appearance in front of a judge on Thursday.
