GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police in Greensboro say the man who prompted a lockdown at Archer Elementary on Tuesday lives across the street from the school.

A Guilford County Schools spokesperson said Tuesday a man kicked in a window to a fifth grade classroom. They called 911 around 12:20 p.m. GCS and police lifted the lockdown around 1:45 p.m.

Prosecutors charged 22-year-old Ondar Dykeen Swain with Assault on a Minor, Misdemeanor Larceny, Injury to Real Property and Second Degree Trespass. They say the assault charge is related to "unwanted touching" of a student. Police say Swain grabbed a child's wrist, but did not harm or injure the child. Prosecutors charged Swain with Larceny because police say Swain took a coat from the playground.

Police still don't know why Swain broke the school's window. Police released Swain on a Written Promise to Appear.

WFMY News 2 has learned Swain has a previous criminal history. In the past, police have arrested Swain for consuming wine or liquor while driving, driving with a suspended or revoked license, possessing a controlled substance, urinating in public and failing to appear in court.

Archer Elementary School is home to Pre-K through fifth grade. About 465 students are enrolled.
