Abaco student injured in altercation

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Abaco Police are investigating an altercation that injured a student. The incident happened around 9 a.m. Thursday. Acting District Superintendent Chester Cooper said a young man was walking to school when a bus carrying students passed. One of the students on the bus threw a pocket knife out the window, hitting the young man below his eye and causing a gash. When the bus stopped in front of the school, a fight broke out involving several students.

A police report released to the media indicates that four female students attacked a male student, causing him bodily injury. The student was taken to Marsh Harbor Clinic, where he received treatment and was later released.

Superintendent Cooper pointed out that the Department of Education has clear policies regarding safety on school campuses and that an officer is stationed at Patrick J Bethel High School. He called on parents and community stakeholders to instill more values ​​in young people.

Last month, a 17-year-old student in Abaco was stabbed by another student of the same age while on the playground. The victim was taken to a local clinic, treated, and then discharged.
