A 17-year-old North Carolina teenager has been indicted by a Forsyth County grand jury after prosecutors presented the case. The indictment alleges that 17-year-old Aquavious ‘Quavo’ Hickman assaulted a social studies teacher by slapping her last month and pushing the head of another teacher in February.

Hickman was first identified by The North Carolina Beat on April 16, a day after he was seen on video slapping his social studies teacher, who The North Carolina Beat also first identified as Marina Burton.

Marina Burton was assaulted by a student, Aquavious Hickman, at Parkland High School.

The incident happened at Parkland High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on April 15. Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O’Neill announced that Hickman was indicted on charges of assault and kidnapping in two disturbing events involving public educators.

Aquavious Hickman charged with second-degree kidnapping a substitute teacher

According to O’Neill, Hickman was charged with second-degree kidnapping and misdemeanor riot stemming from a February incident in which Hickman and other students attacked a male teacher. The teacher allegedly assaulted was Larry Edwards, according to O’Neill.

Aquavious 'Quavo' Hickman was charged with assaulting another teacher in an incident stemming from February 1. He is accused of slapping another teacher twice during an incident on April 15.

He said Edwards is a retired educator who was working as a substitute teacher on February 1 when his head was pushed in the hallway, allegedly by Hickman and other students. According to O’Neill, Hickman and the other students, unlawfully confined and restrained Edwards without consent to terrorize him. 

“I walked up to the desk to get my phone to call the office and he mockingly walked behind me, and I happened to turn around and see him and the students started laughing,” Edwards said in a report last week.

“The next thing I know he had taken his hand and smushed my head and everybody started laughing and he ran out.”

District Attorney O’Neill said that his office stands with teachers and will fight for them.

“And if you lay a hand on a teacher and assault a teacher, you can expect that the punishment will be swift and severe,” DA O’Neill said.
