RCMP and the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District are investigating an incident that is alleged to have happened between a couple of students in Stephenville.  

An 11-year-old was allegedly assaulted by another student, after they disembarked from the bus Thursday afternoon in the Cornwall Heights area.  

District officials said a witness filed a report.

Though the incident happened off school property, disciplinary action has been taken by Stephenville Middle School.
