Green Island Students Remanded into Custody After Attack on Bus Driver

Jamaica News, March 19, 2018 – Green Island Students Remanded                                     

Hanover, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Our news team has been informed that the three Green Island High School students who appeared in the Hanover Family Court on Friday, March 16, 2018, following their attack on a bus driver, have been remanded in custody.

Green Island Students Remanded: All three students were ordered to be transported to the Metcalfe Correctional Centre in Kingston, where they will be kept until they are brought back to court on Thursday, March 29, 2018. The three of five male students appeared in court to answer to charges of assault and malicious destruction of property.

Reports are that shortly after 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, the five male students armed themselves with knives, choppers and stones and attacked the bus driver who was at a vendor’s stall outside the school gate.  The driver, who was slapped in his face several times by the group of angry boys, also received injuries inflicted by the knife wielding students.

To avoid being stabbed to death, the driver ran inside his Coaster bus, but the students gave chase and hurled several stones at the vehicle smashing the windows. The incident was reported to the Green Island police, who told our news team that they went to the school on Thursday morning, in search of the five students who were involved in the incident, but they did not turn up for school as they normally do.

Following an investigation by the police, two of the boys were taken into custody and the other handed over by his father after he reportedly saw the video.

In the meanwhile, the Hanover police have stated that they are still searching for the other two students who were also involved in the incident.
