N. Idaho Man Assaults Child After Walking Into Elementary School


(CRAIGMONT) – A 10-year-old elementary school student in northern Idaho was assaulted Monday by a man who walked into a school in Craigmont.

Byron Scott Edwards, 36, allegedly harassed and assaulted several students, putting one into a chokehold. He was later jailed in a neighboring county on unrelated drug and theft charges.
