Hanover, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – The Green Island police and members of the Green Island Administrative staff have now launched a full investigation into an incident which occurred outside the school gate on Wednesday afternoon, March 7, where a group of male students who attend the institution, armed themselves with knives and choppers, and launched a physical attack on a young bus driver.
It is also reported that the students in question, also use stones to smash the windows of a Toyota Coaster bus which was being driven by the bus driver.
Reports are that shortly after 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the five male students armed themselves with knives, choppers, and stones, then attacked the bus driver who was at a vendor’s stall outside the school gate.
The driver was slapped in his face several times by the group of angry boys and was also reported to have received injuries inflicted by the students.
To avoid being stabbed to death, the driver ran inside his Coaster bus, but, the students gave chase and hurled several stones in the vehicle, smashing out the bus windows, and also inflicting wounds to other students who were passengers in the bus.
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, but they did not turn up for school as they normally do.
Superintendent in Charge of Hanover, Sharon BePut, also stated that she will be meeting with the school principal on Friday, in a bid to get the full identities of the students involved and to make sure that an incident such as this does not repeat itself.
The Superintendent also mentioned that, these students will be dealt with according to law because these incidents are fast becoming a norm all over the education system in Jamaica.
