Hanover, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – The Hanover police have confirmed that on Tuesday morning of March 13, 2018, three of the five Green Island High School male students who were recently caught on video assaulting a bus driver outside the school gate have been officially charged.
Superintendent of Police in Charge of Hanover, Sharon Beeput have stated that the three boys were on Tuesday charged with assault and malicious destruction of property. They are booked to appear in the Green Island Court on Friday, March 16, 2018.
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 was slapped in his face several times by the group of angry boys and was also reported to have received injuries inflicted by the knife welding 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 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.
