The police say they are probing an incident that occurred at the Charlestown Secondary School at about 3.40 today where relatives of a twelve-year-old student attacked teachers of the school with cutlasses, after it was alleged that the student had been assaulted by one of the teachers.
A police release said that investigations revealed that the student was allegedly assaulted by the teacher who he claimed had hit his head against a concrete wall in the school.
