A Beltzhoover man was arrested after witnesses told police he confronted elementary students who he said were bullying his kids.
School van driver Michael Allen, who was waiting to take students to an after school program, told police he saw Steven Schramm approach the Arlington Elementary School with his teenage son.
“He slammed him down to the ground, an elementary child,” Allen said. “It was definitely ugly.”
Allen said he ran to help the child, when Schramm allegedly threatened him with a baseball bat and said, “I’m not scared of you. I’ll hit you with this bat, you black.”
“I put myself to the side, didn’t want kids to get hurt. I was insulted. It was what it was,” Allen said.
Upon arriving to the scene, Pittsburgh Police arrested Schramm and charged him with ethnic intimidation and aggravated assault.
Police said Schramm told them his son was being bullied and he decided to take matters into his own hands.
Schramm was taken to the Allegheny County Jail, and remains on $100,000 bond. According to school officials, he is banned from school property.
