Two male students from a prominent high school in St Thomas have been taken into custody, after a video surfaced that showed them assaulting another schoolboy.
The incident happened last week and was recorded and posted on several social media sites, including Facebook.
The video caused outrage among many social media viewers, who denounced the boys as bullies and troublemakers. Sadly this is just another example of what students experienced thankfully it was captured and shared.
There was a previous case without a video however in 2014:
Deputy Superintendent Charmaine Shand of the St Thomas police confirmed that the incident was under investigation. She said officers have also received a statement from the boy who was assaulted.
The St Thomas police also said that they have expanded their support to the school, offering aid in conflict resolution and violence reduction.
Shand is also appealing for the individual who recorded the incident to make a statement to the police to assist with the investigation.
