Bray People - - NEWS - MARY FOG­A­RTY

GAR­DAI WERE forced to use pep­per spray to re­strain a teenager at St. Thomas' Com­mu­nity School in Bray last Mon­day af­ter­noon.

Gar­dai were called to the school on No­vara Av­enue at 2.50 p.m. on Mon­day. The 14-year-old boy was act­ing in an ag­gres­sive man­ner and at­tempt­ing to kick the door of the staff room. He was in a highly ag­i­tated state. Su­per­in­ten­dent Pat Ward of Bray Garda Sta­tion said that the boy ap­peared to have is­sues with mem­bers of staff at the lo­cal school and caused a dis­tur­bance.

Supt. Ward also con­firmed that gar­dai used in­ca­pac­i­tant spray to deal with the hos­tile be­hav­iour of the youth and sub­due him.

The boy was re­moved from the scene and gar­daí are fol­low­ing the mat­ter up.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Ward said that the Ju­ve­nile Li­ai­son Of­fi­cer will be in­volved with the pur­suit of the case as would be the case in all such mat­ters which in­volve a young per­son.
