By Aaron Humes: Police say they have detained a man from Franks Eddy, Cayo District, in connection with an apparent brawl with students from Ladyville Technical High School that disrupted school just before nine this morning.
According to police, they responded to a reported fight on the school compound and found a group of male students gathered around another young man with injuries on his forehead being held by teachers from the school.
Police’s initial investigations revealed that at about 8:30, students were walking past the fence separating the school from the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing’s Public Works compound when the man jumped the fence and approached the students with a machete in hand. They began to struggle and the students managed to overpower and disarm him until teachers could intervene and apprehend him.
What led to the confrontation has not been disclosed but it was captured on video, showing boys armed with metal chairs lashing at the suspect holding the machete until they manage to subdue him.
Police investigations continue.
