NORTH LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A Clark County School District custodian was suspended after a reported altercation with a student last Friday.

Sergio Mitchell, a custodian at Ruby Duncan Elementary, was charged with battery and interfering with a pupil, according to CCSD police. District officials confirmed Mitchell was placed on indefinite suspension as of March 8.

A person familiar with the incident said that a nine-year-old student said a swear word to Mitchell during an altercation. Mitchell reportedly grabbed the student by the throat in response.
