The Toronto District School Board has ordered an educational assistant to stay home pending the outcome of an investigation into allegations that he choked the six-year-old boy he was meant to be supervising.

The Grade 1 student's mother contacted Toronto police and they have also launched a criminal probe into what happened at St. Margaret's Public School on Thursday afternoon.
