A fight between two 17-year-old students at a Langford high school on Friday ended with an arrest and a West Shore RCMP investigation.
At around 10:55 a.m. on Friday, December 9th, at Belmont Secondary School, the two teenage students fought near the school, just off the property at the far end of the main parking lot.
Police say that the principal called them to investigate after the two youths fought.
At the end of the fight one of the two students reportedly kicked the other student in the head several times, breaking their nose and his cheekbone.
The student who kicked the other student in the head also suffered minor injuries during the brawl, but has since been arrested for assault causing bodily harm.
That student was placed on conditions to not have any contact with the victim and has a court appearance scheduled for February 2023.
“This crime is still under investigation. We are aware that there were several youths who witnessed this fight take place and only some have come forward to speak to police,” said Cpl. Nancy Saggar West Shore RCMP Media Relations Officer.
“We are requesting the remaining youth witnesses to please come forward and speak to us.”
Anyone who has information or was present for the fight can reach West Shore RCMP by calling (250) 474-2264.
