A sixth-grade student at I.S. 125, which is located on the border of Sunnyside and Woodside, was taken into police custody last week after she doused a classroom with pepper spray.
Police said the 12 year old did not say why she sprayed the classroom. The girl’s action sent her 39-year-old teacher and two male students, ages 11 and 12, to Elmhurst Hospital Center.
The teacher and students were treated at Elmhurst for eye and throat irritation and released, sources said.
