Two days before Christmas, seven-year-old Ka’veon Wilson came to class at P.S. 194 in Harlem with a tray of cupcakes for his classmates. His teacher, Osman Couey, shoved him out the door and locked it. Ka’veon, a special education student, started banging on the door to get back in. School psychologist Steven Castiglia heard the commotion and knocked on the classroom door. Couey unlocked it and Ka’veon tried to squeeze in. According to the NY Post,
Castiglia testified that Couey “threw” the boy into his legs. “It was just like he was bowling,” the psychologist said. “He (Ka’veon) flew into my ankles and it stung.”
A video surveillance camera captured Ka’veon being tossed across the hallway.
