School fight to bring assault charges
Students made video of fight
Charges of assault causing bodily harm are pending following a fight at Souris Regional High School, say RCMP in eastern P.E.I.
Souris RCMP responded to a complaint on Tuesday following a fight between two students.
A male student was assaulted by another male youth while several students stood by watching and making videos. The victim suffered a concussion.
Charges are pending against one student for assault causing bodily harm. All students involved will be dealt with according to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
A news release from the RCMP said all calls regarding school violence will be treated seriously and may result in criminal charges to anyone involved.
"Assault is not entertainment," the news release said.
RCMP said charges could be extended beyond those directly involved in the altercation.
