Motorcyclists assault students at TN Tatem
Police were called to TN Tatem Middle School in Warwick yesterday after three men drove on to the school premises on motorbikes and assaulted two students.
A letter sent to parents yesterday afternoon by principal Garita Coddington said that two of the men on bikes targeted two pupils and snatched chains from them.
Ms Coddington described the incident, which occurred at about lunch time, as a “sensitive issue” and said that police had “acted immediately with urgency”.
“I am writing to communicate about a sensitive issue that occurred at our school this afternoon,” Ms Coddington said in the letter.
“At the end of the lunch session today we had three males come on our property on bikes, without permission. Two of the males stayed and snatched chains off of two of our students.
“Protocols were immediately put in place to support the two students who were assaulted. The matter is now with the local police who acted immediately with urgency.
“Know that the school is doing all within our remit to ensure the safety of our students. Thank you for your continued support and assistance with all matters relating to our school and our students.”
Police said witnesses or anyone with relevant information should contact the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
