(WMAR-TV) PERRY HALL, Md. – The father of a Perry Hall High School student struck a teacher with a baseball bat after police were made aware of a series of texts between the teacher, a 42-year-old man, and a 15-year-old student, Baltimore County police said.

Police said an officer of the White Marsh Precinct read over dozens of texts that “described an emotional relationship that seemed inappropriate for a teacher and student,” according to a release from the Baltimore County Police Department. The girl’s mother alerted police to the texts at about 3 a.m. at the precinct.

Police determined however that no crime had been committed. The case was referred to the Crimes Against Children Unit for further investigation, police said.
