Youth Charged After Assault at Carbonear Collegiate

RCMP in Harbour Grace have charged a male youth for allegedly assaulting another student at Carbonear Collegiate.

On Friday the school initiated "secure school" procedures when there was an altercation between two students.

Secure School is a course of action in which school safety is best achieved by restricting student and staff movement throughout the building.

One student was taken to hospital.

The youth, who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is facing a single-count charge of assault.
