Durham Regional Police were called to O’Neill Collegiate and Vocational Institute in Oshawa last week after a fight broke out involving adults and students.
The skirmish took place outside, but on school property. O’Neill Collegiate is located on Simcoe Street North.
The Durham Regional School Board remains mum on the situation, with a spokesperson asked for comment saying only, “This is a police matter and we are supporting the police investigation into this incident.
“At all times, the safety and well-being of our students and staff are paramount. We are concerned that this incident took place.”
Nothing further could be said because minors are involved, according to the school board.
Although the reason for the fight was not given, Durham police confirmed they were needed to intervene in the donnybrook and that five people have been charged.
Sgt. Joanne Bortoluss confirmed in a statement Friday, “There was a fight at the school and police were called. The incident does involve minors, however, from the information I have is that two adults did become involved in the fight.
“Charges have been laid against the adults as well as three students. All are facing assault charges stemming from the incident.”
We apologize, but this video has failed to load.
It is believed the adults who were charged are parents of students at the school, but that has not been confirmed.
Police have said there were no weapons involved.
