BALTIMORE (AP) — School officials say a Baltimore city school police officer was doused with bleach while breaking up a fight.

News outlets report Baltimore City Public Schools spokeswoman Edie House-Foster says an 18-year-old student at Achievement Academy threw bleach in the unnamed officer's eyes Tuesday. She said the bleach also splattered in the eyes of a hall monitor and onto the clothes of another student.

House-Foster says the student will be charged with three counts of first-degree assault and reckless endangerment. She has not been named.

The officer and hall monitor were taken to the hospital, and later released. House-Foster said the student didn't require treatment, and both are expected to fully recover.

The president of the city school police union, Sgt. Clyde Boatwright, said the officer will require further medical evaluation.
