The four men who were being sought in relation to the wounding of a high school student in St Catherine, have surrendered to the police.


The St Catherine South Police will be conducting interview sessions with the men in the presence of their lawyers.


Police said the wounded boy remains hospitalized in serious but stable condition.


The Grade 10 Cumberland High School student was attacked and stabbed by a group of young men, minutes after he left school yesterday (June 15).


A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.


Meantime, administrators at Cumberland High are offering support to the wounded child and his family.


Administrators said the boy is a well-behaved student and that it is not clear what led to the altercation.


They said representatives from the school visited the child in hospital today, and that he is in good spirits despite the wounds.


Arrangements are being made for the child to sit his internal examinations at a later date.


Trauma counselling sessions are being held with the boy and his relatives.


Similar sessions will be held with the student population next Monday (June 19).


Psycho-social support is also being offered by the guidance counsellor and the Education Ministry.
