Ladysmith RCMP are investigating a report of a student receiving a puncture wound at the high school.

On Friday, Dec. 19 at 11:55 a.m., staff at Ladysmith Secondary School called the RCMP to report that a student had a puncture wound and was currently at the Ladysmith Community Health Centre, according to a press release from Staff Sgt. Dave Herman.

Ladysmith RCMP first went to the school and spoke to staff, who said the student had reported the incident shortly after it occurred to a teacher.

Police officers then went to the Ladysmith Community Health Centre and spoke to the student.

“The student stated he was in the crowded hallway and headed to the bathroom during a break between classes when he felt a sharp pinch in his back,” said Herman. “By the time he turned around, he saw many students behind him in the hallway but none he recognized or thought would be responsible. The student said his back started to hurt and he asked a teacher to look at it, and that was when the wound was found. The hospital staff advised RCMP investigators that the wound measured was five millimeters wide by four millimeters deep, requiring one suture.”

Police are asking anyone who has information that may be useful to contact the Ladysmith RCMP at 250-245-2215.

Police are also seeking the public’s help as they investigate an incident at Aggie Hall.

On Monday, Dec. 22 at 12:38 a.m., Ladysmith RCMP received a report of a possible break and enter in progress at the Aggie Hall from a witness who could hear banging and glass shattering. Suspects were described as two kids with black hoodies and jeans, and it was stated that they were standing on the corner of Symonds and Second.

Ladysmith RCMP attended the area immediately and arrested two people, who were subsequently released to appear in Provincial Court at a later date.

The estimated damage to Aggie Hall is undetermined at this time but may likely be in the thousands of dollars.

The RCMP are seeking assistance in getting to the bottom of this matter. It is strongly believed there is additional evidence and witnesses that have not yet come to light.
