PERRY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Perry County Sheriff's Office reports a man has been arrested in Bollinger County in connection with an alleged assault on school property.

Jesse Steven Walls, 18, of Sedgewickville, Missouri, was charged with three counts of assault while on school property, domestic assault in the 2nd degree, unlawful use of weapon and armed criminal action.

According to court documents, the director of a career and technology center in Perry County asked for assistance on Wednesday, Nov. 18 with some alleged assaults that happened over a couple months between two students.

The incidents allegedly happened in the shop and classroom area of the Auto Collision Center.

On Sept. 7 at around 2 p.m. Walls allegedly did a "MMA technique" and took another student to the ground.

According to court documents, Walls used his foot to trip the student while using his arms to twist her body in the opposite direction, knocking her off balance and throwing her to the ground.

The student was trying to stand up when Walls allegedly kicked her in the stomach.

On Tuesday, Oct. 20 at around 1:40 p.m., in the paint booth located in the auto shop, Walls allegedly grabbed the student from behind, wrapped his arm around her neck and throat, choked her until she couldn't breathe, pulled a knife, flipped it open and allegedly put the blade to her throat.

Walls allegedly told the student he was going to kill her.

At around 2:15 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2, the student was in the auto collision classroom. As she bent down to plug in a laptop computer, Walls allegedly grabbed her by the hair and pulled her down to the ground.

According to court documents, after Walls let go of her hair, she tried to leave, but Wall allegedly grabbed one of her arms and began to twist it.

Walls allegedly didn't let go until the student began to cry.

At around Thursday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 p.m., the girl and another student were in the paint booth of the auto shop. Walls allegedly came into the booth, pulled a knife and stuck it to her stomach.

The Bollinger County Sheriff's Office arrested Walls and he was later taken to the Perry County Sheriff's Office.
