Investigators from the Kingston Eastern Division have taken a woman into custody following an incident at a school in Port Royal where a 10-year-old boy was assaulted on Tuesday.
 
Reports are that about 2:30 p.m., the boy was among a group of students who were reportedly heckling the woman. The woman reportedly grabbed the youngster's neck.
 
A teacher quickly intervened and separated the woman from the boy. He was assisted to the hospital in a JDF Coast Guard ambulance and the woman taken into custody. The child is still in hospital.
 
The police are yet to decide what charges will be laid against the woman.
