Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was beaten by two assailants at Northlands Primary School in Pembroke last Friday.

The attack took place at about 3.15pm after the victim had parked his motorcycle in the school’s parking lot.

According to police, he was approached by two men. The confrontation led to an argument and a fight broke out, during which the victim received head and facial wounds.

The victim, 42, was taken to hospital but released after treatment.

A police spokesman said: “The two suspects, said to be twin brothers, left the area on foot, shortly after the incident.

“They are described as light complexioned, slim built, and approximately 5ft 10in. One of the suspects sports dreadlocks, the other had his hair braided.

“At the time of the incident they were both dressed in grey hoodies, grey sweat pants and black neck scarves.”

The incident was condemned by Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, on Friday night.

Mr Rabain said: “I want to thank the Northland's teachers and parents who ensured that students were kept out of harms way. I'm sure this must have been a very concerning incident for our young ones.”

Anyone with information on the incident, is asked to call Detective Sergeant Seymour Foote on 717 2282, 247 1154, the main police number 295-0011, or the non-emergency reporting number 211. You may also e-mail Sergeant Foote at sfoote@bps.bm.

Police are interested in hearing from nearby residents who have CCTV cameras as they may have recorded the incident or footage of the suspects arriving at or leaving the scene.
