PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad — Police say a primary school principal in Trinidad has been charged with cruelty for allegedly pushing the heads of two boys into a toilet and flushing.

Arlene Blackman did not enter plea during today's hearing. She was released on a $25,000 bond and faces a Feb. 16 court hearing.

Police accuse Blackman of punishing the boys aged 8 and 10 after she found them playing in the bathroom.

She had previously warned students that playing was not allowed in the bathroom.

Blackman is the longtime owner of Blackman's Private School in Maraval, a middle-class residential area in northwest Port-of Spain.
