It sounds as though you acted completely appropriately in stopping the student from eloping. Enduring physical abuse by a violent student should not be a part of your job description. Put your concerns in writing to the dean and ask for another meeting to discuss the protocol for dealing with this student, and insist that the protocol be reduced to writing. If you are assaulted in the future you may have an action against the school for personal injury and negligent supervision since the dean is on notice of the student's violent tendencies.
