Denham Town High School Student Kicking Another Jailed

A student of the Denham Town High School in Kingston has been taken into police custody following the release of a video in which he and another boy were seen beating a fellow student.

The video, which has gone viral on social media, shows two students ordering another to kneel and then kicking and slapping him several times.

Head of the Kingston Western police, Senior Superintendent Michael Phipps stated that charges would be laid against the student in custody.

 

“We got wind of the video, and we have taken some action around it, in that we have identified the student who was beaten up and we basically recorded a statement from him and are in the process of laying charges on one of the persons involved,” SSP Phipps said.

He revealed that the police are seeking to make several more arrests in connection with the incident.

"We have only located one so far, we have been in search of the others. We have gone to premises, to addresses, and have asked the parents to take them in to us. With the support of the school we should be making other arrests very soon,” Phipps added.

In the video, the student, who is dressed in a white shirt and school tie, got down on his knees and was kicked in his side. He got up and was slapped and told to kneel back down. When he did, he was kicked again and, upon getting up, was slapped several times before being told to kneel again.
