Two of the five students accused of attacking the Dean of Discipline at the Aabuthnott Gallimore High School in St. Ann on Friday, are now in police custody.

Head of the St. Ann police, Senior Superintendent Carlton Wilson, said the boys, who are both 17-year-old, were taken in by relatives.

He said another teenager is expected to be brought in later today, while the other two cannot be located.

The Dean of Disciple, Gavin Myers, was reportedly attacked after he tried to remove the five boys from the school compound.

It is reported that the students were on suspension at the time of the incident.

Myers was hospitalised with broken bones and other injuries following the attack.
