CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A mother accused of attacking a student inside a high school faced a judge on Friday morning.

Averyanna Tarrant, 37, pleaded not guilty to the accusations that she broke the 15-year-old girl’s orbital bone.

Police say the alleged attack occurred in the bathroom at John Marshall High School in January.

A friend of Tarrant, as well as her teen daughter, were also arrested for their involvement in the attack.

Tarrant’s bond was set at $10,000 for felonious assault. A pretrial court appearance is scheduled for later in the month.
