KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A Parkway Middle School teacher is accused of forcing one of his coworkers into a classroom closet and attacking her, according to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said Shawn Greaves, 51, was in a classroom with the victim around 4 p.m. April 5 discussing an upcoming field trip when he lifted the female teacher up, placed her over his shoulder, then carried her to a closet and set her down on a desk.

The victim yelled "get your hands off me," "put me down" and "how dare you touch me" as Greaves pressed his body against hers and repeatedly thrust against her, according to an incident report.

The encounter left the female victim in tears, deputies said.

Greaves was arrested Tuesday on battery and kidnapping charges. He has since bonded out of the Osceola County Jail. 

An Osceola School District spokeswoman said Greaves is a varying exceptionalities teacher, which means he works with students with disabilities, who has been with the district since 1977. 

He has been reassigned out of the school to a district department that does not have any children, she said.

"Teachers have been talking all day and then, like, after school they said on the announcements they had to have an emergency, like, teacher, teacher-staff meeting, stuff like that so. Everyone was kind of, like, worried," eighth grade student  Ali Sissoko said.

An audio recording was sent to parents Wednesday afternoon notifying them of the arrest.
