Police are investigating an incident at the Pierre Charles Secondary School (PCSS) on Friday that left the security guard and one student nursing stab wounds.
According to Vice Principal of the PCSS Francis Jno Lewis, at about 12:30 p.m. during the annual Fun and Frolic day at the school, a security officer was stabbed in “his back and stomach area,” and a male student who tried to assist him was also injured.
The student and security officer were taken to the Grandbay Hospital for treatment.
“At about 12:30 p.m. the principal’s office was informed that there were persons loitering on the school compound. The vice principal instructed the security officer to escort the loiterers out of the school compound. About five minutes later the security guard returned to the office and informed the vice principal that he was attacked by two persons,” Jno Lewis reported.
“A young man involved in the attack had fled the scene and a young lady, from another secondary school was detained in the office by school personnel and the police was called in to investigate. The police detained the young lady and she was taken to the Grandbay Police Station” he stated.
Jno Lewis said following the incident, a brief assembly was held and the school continued its normal activities without further incident.
He said he has since submitted a report to the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development.
