Assault teacher's home attacked

Police are investigating an attack on the home of a Dundee teacher who was found guilty of assaulting two pupils.

Eggs were thrown at the windows of Mike Barile's house in the Downfield area of the city on Monday night.

It has also been reported that several car tyres have been destroyed, glue was squirted into his front door lock and his wife had been verbally abused.

Mr Barile, 51, was convicted last week of grabbing one pupil by the jumper and pinning another against a wall.

He is to appeal against the conviction.
