Woman charged in assault of teacher, stealing iPhone 10

NATCHEZ — A Natchez woman faces charges of simple assault and grand larceny after Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputies said she assaulted a teacher and a family member took her iPhone 10.

Rhondraneika Quinntessa Thompson was released Tuesday on a $50,000 bond after being charged with simple assault and grand larceny in the incident that occurred May 14, said Lt. Cal Green of the ACSO.

The crime report states that Deputy Terry Thames responded to a call at the Thompson Head Start School on N. Union Street in Natchez where a teacher said Thompson hit her in the face.

“Ms. Thompson came to the school due to an issue with her child,” the report states. “(The teacher) said that Ms. Thompson was yelling at her and that she had walked away from her into a class to avoid any further incident with Mr. Thompson, but she continued to come at Ms. Martin and struck her in the face several times.”

The crime report said the incident was caught on a school security camera and that the teacher had attempted to defender herself.

The teacher also said that a family member Thompson’s left the school with the teacher’s iPhone 10 valued at $1,100.
