Charges: Student punched college teacher unconscious, attacked another staffer

The female instructor suffered two broken bones in her face.

One of the college instructors attacked by a student this week was punched into unconsciousness and suffered two broken bones.

Charges have been brought against 21-year-old Gavin Hutson, of St. Paul, in connection to assaults on staff at Normandale Community College, Bloomington, on Wednesday.

The first victim of the attack was a 51-year-old female instructor, who had asked him to stay after class to discuss an inappropriate remark he'd made to another student.

Hutson did stay behind, but then hit the instructor, knocking her to the floor where she lost consciousness.

While she was knocked out, Hutson stood over her and continued punching her.

A witness yelled for help and another instructor came in to try and pull Hutson away. Hutson then punched this second teacher, possibly using an object, as it caused a cut to the right side of his forehead.

Hutson fled the room, leaving behind his backpack, and on his way out of the building he "stiff-armed" a student, pushing him into the wall and causing him pain to his wrist, which was already broken and was in a soft splint.

Police caught Hutson in a nearby parking ramp, where he had blood splattered on his hands and sleeves.

An X-ray in a nearby hospital revealed the broken bones suffered by the female instructor.

Hutson's bag was also recovered by police, who found a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol inside, which was loaded, along with additional ammunition in the bag. 

Hutson has been charged with 3rd degree and 5th degree assault, and possession of a firearm without a license.
