Redwood City Teacher Arrested For Alleged Physical Abuse

REDWOOD CITY (CBS / AP) — An investigation into allegations of physical abuse of two students at a Redwood City elementary school has resulted in an arrest of a teacher at the school.

Redwood City police say teacher Alexia Aliki Bogdisis in custody after a warrant was issued and she surrendered at police headquarters Saturday morning.

Police Capt. Ed Hernandez says her arrest comes after Child Protective Services investigated complaints of physical abuse of two 4-year-old male students at Roosevelt Elementary School.

Investigators say the alleged abuse, described as physical but not sexual, took place over the past few months.

The 44-year-old Bogdisis, a resident of Millbrae, was being held at San Mateo County Jail.
