(Toledo News Now) -

A second family has come forward and has filed a report against Riverdale teacher Barb Williams.

WTOL's Jerry Anderson spoke with Bryce and April Blanton of Forest, OH. They filed a report with the Hancock County Sheriff Saturday. The Blantons told us that their 8-year-old, who has Asperger's Syndrome, was a student in Williams' class. They say they noticed bruises on their child and that the boy was reluctant to go to school.

Additionally the Blantons say their child was sent home with a photograph of Williams with text telling the child not to talk out loud. The parents say they were instructed by Williams to read it to him every day.

Williams is currently being investigated after video surveillance showed her being aggressive with another kindergarten student Ian Nelson. (Click here for video of that incident)

The Hancock County Sheriff's Office says a report was filed on the second incident, but is not releasing any more information because the case is still under investigation.

The family has hired the same attorney, Dan Margolis, as the Nelsons.
