A student at South Delta Secondary School was arrested this week, following an alleged assault on another student.

According to Delta Police, the incident took place on September 18, during school hours, on the school’s property.

On Friday, police said a school liaison officer was made aware of the incident while working at the school on the same day.

“An investigation commenced immediately,” said Delta Police spokesperson Cris Leykauf. “A student was arrested in relation to this matter on September 18.”

Leykauf said police anticipate forwarding charges in relation to this matter to Crown Counsel for their consideration.

In the meantime, the student has been released from custody on a number of conditions, which include staying away from SDSS. Delta Police Victim Services is being offered to the student and the student’s family, as well.

Police said that because the suspect in this case is a youth even if charges are laid, the name of the student will not be released, as per the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
