FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

A Cumberland County Schools teacher was arrested Friday for assaulting two autistic students, authorities said.

Doris Holloway, 57, of 6313 Milton Drive, Fayetteville, was arrested and charged with two counts of assault on a handicapped person, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said.

The sheriff's office said surveillance video from May 7 shows a 7-year-old boy being lifted off the ground. Witnesses to the incident said Holloway picked the child up by his shirt and pulled him into a classroom, authorities said. The boy fell into a desk in the classroom.

The student is unable to talk, the sheriff's office said.

Also on May 7, surveillance video shows Holloway twisting the arm of a 9-year-old autistic student, the sheriff's office said.

A magistrate allowed Holloway to be released from the Cumberland County Detention Center if fulfilled two written promises to appear in court, the sheriff's office said.

Holloway's first court appearance is Sept. 10 at 9:00 a.m.

Authorities said Holloway works for the Cumberland County School System at Glendale Acres Elementary School. She teaches kindergarten, first and second grades there, authorities said.
