Police are investigating the alleged assault of Parkinson Memorial School principal Jeff Broomes this morning.
Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said that around 9:30 a.m, a parent of a student walked onto the school’s compound and refused to leave when asked to by authorities. He said reports are that the parent then made his way into the principal’s office, assaulted him and snatched off his spectacles which he destroyed in the process.
It is understood that the attack was triggered after Broomes contacted the parent of the 15-year-old student over her attendance record. The student did not attend school for an extended period but turned up for class yesterday.
Ministry of Education officials and police are at the Pine, St Michael school investigating the matter. (AH)
