A grade 10 student of Pembroke Hall High in St Andrew remains hospitalised after being stabbed yesterday during a robbery attempt.

The male student was attacked at a bus stop while on his way from school.

It's alleged that the attackers demanded his cell phone and when the student said he did not have it, he was stabbed multiple times.

The police have not reported any breakthrough in the case.

The incident comes amid public outcry over the violence against women and children. 

Last year, a Jamaica College student was murdered in a bus by a man who allegedly wanted to take his phone.
