A statement from Police Sgt. L’Jean Mckneely Jr. says Deen, 31, is accused of locking a student in a cafeteria closet on August 22.

News media report that the kindergarten student was hysterical when teachers heard her screams and found her.

The charter school’s board suspended Deen on Thursday while it investigates. Its chairwoman and vice-chairman could not immediately be reached for comment Friday.
