Richmond Hill High School

A Richmond Hill High School teacher was arrested and charged on Tuesday morning with the assault of a 16-year-old student at the school.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct cuffed 59-year-old Paul Ray after he injured the boy, causing a scratch on his face with the aluminum foil from an aspirin packet, police said.

The assault occurred at the school on Dec. 7, and stemmed from an “unknown incident,” as law enforcement sources described.

As for the foil that Ray allegedly used to scratch up the student, an NYPD spokesperson said, “It became a weapon as soon as he used it to hurt somebody.”

Ray was charged on Dec. 18 with two counts of assault and one count of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident. Richmond Hill High School is located at 89-30 114th St.

In a statement to QNS, a spokesperson for the Department of Education stated that the agency “reassigned this teacher pending the criminal investigation of this deeply troubling allegation.”
