Fri, 2023-04-14

Around 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, April 13th, 2023, police received a report of students involved in an altercation at the Bus Terminal in the City of Hamilton. Upon arrival, officers were directed to the number 9 bus where they were alerted to two female Middle School students, who were then escorted off of the bus.

The two students were informed they would be taken to Hamilton Police Station and their parents contacted. Upon being told this, they became belligerent toward the officers and attempted to leave the scene. They were prevented from doing so by the officers who were then confronted by other students and members of the public.

The two female students were then transported to Hamilton Police Station to avoid any further escalation. They were both spoken to and subsequently released into the care of their parents.

One of the students was found to be in possession of a canister containing pepper spray. The item was seized.

Inquiries into this matter are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact Acting Sergeant Richard Marriott on 717-2432 or, via email –
