SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – A teacher has been arrested for allegedly slamming a young girl’s head into a wall.

Ben Chen, 27, was taken into custody at Basis Charter School in Scottsdale where he is employed.

Police say Chen assaulted a 6-year-old girl who is not a student at the school. The victim is reportedly the daughter of his partner.

Chen is accused of shoving the girl into the wall several times because the victim would not let him take a nap.

The 6-year-old attended school with serious bruises on her face last week and said she was not supposed to tell when asked about them at school.

School officials contacted Child Protective Services.

Chen reportedly admitted to using too much force when he put her into the “time out” corner.
