Authorities at a secondary school in Tobago where a student was reportedly injured have taken steps to ensure that the school compound is more secure.
Last week there were reports that a student in Tobago had an altercation with another boy, who subsequently alerted his father and brother.
The young man’s family members reportedly gained access to the school compound and made contact with the student.
According to police reports teachers at the school were forced to intervene, in a bid to quell the situation which occurred on the school’s compound after lunch.
Reports further indicate that the father obtained a piece of steel and ran after the boy who jumped one floor down, in a bid to escape, breaking his leg as a result.
The child was rushed to the Scarborough General Hospital where he was warded.

He disclosed that all parties in the incident had to bear responsibility for what occurred.
He said that that the school authorities have launched an investigation into the matter.
