A Bronx charter-school teacher recruited a student to help him score $4,000 worth of marijuana — and he beat the teen senseless when he found out the kid pocketed the cash, police sources said Friday.
Kevin Pope, 48, also stole the teen’s iPhone and wallet and threatened to sexually assault his mother if he didn’t get his money back, the sources said.
“I will kill you if I don’t get my money!” Pope allegedly told the student after pummeling him. “I want my money in a month!”
Pope, a science teacher at the John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy in Hunts Point, was arrested at the school Friday morning and charged with assault and robbery in the attack a day earlier.
