A 16 year old received six stitches after being stabbed seven times allegedly by an 18 year old fellow student at Ottos Comprehensive School on Thursday morning.


The incident happened on a corridor about 10:30 and caused a hubbub on the compound.


The Emergency Medical Services and police rushed to the compound after the 18 year old 4th form student was allegedly heard telling the 16 year old 3rd form student: “all mi a tell you, tap interfere wid mi pardner,” after which he reportedly attacked the 16 year old from behind with a pair of scissors.


The victim was stabbed three times in the head and four elsewhere on the body. The attacker was reportedly swinging the scissors wildly during the incident, but he was eventually subdued and held at the security booth, still bristling with rage, until police arrived and detained him.


The victim, with his shirt covered in blood, was assisted on the compound before an ambulance transported him to hospital where he was treated and later discharged.



Police are now investigating; school officials managed to restore calm to ensure the resumption of classes for the remainder of the day.

  1. Principal Roberts, you have a helluva task on your hand managing this school in particular. Maybe a tiny part of the solution could be to invite some effective guest speakers to converse with the student body. This can include notable alumni e.g. CP, Tizzy, Calvin S, King Bankers etc

    The last thing we need is for any to end up dead like TESSA BARTHLEY R.I.P and be ROBBED of a future. The scissors was recovered from the student, but to date no one knows where is the GUN that SHERFIELD BOWEN used to SHOOT TESSA BARTHLEY 🤔 👀

    • Here we go again…
      This has nothing to do with the incident in question…
      Give it a rest pleaseeeee!!

      • Here we go again….trying to ignore the facts!!! SHERFIELD BOWEN used a GUN to SHOOT TESSA BARTHLEY 🩸💉

        Where is the GUN that SHERFIELD BOWEN used to SHOOT TESSA BARTHLEY?? 🤔👀

  2. We do need Jesus inspired individuals to speak with these students.
    These students need to realize that schooling is the preparation for manhood and womanhood when after this phase of school life they’ll be required/expected to have a job with earnings to maintain the enormous responsibilities of teenagers moving into adulthood. And if their lives are messed up at an early age/stage, what’s next.
    These youths need to be encouraged to project what’s their expectations after school. Envision what careers they hope to pursue and the steps getting there. They must be made aware that many of the young convicted murderers who used knives and scissors to commit these crimes are 100% remorseful and wished that they hadn’t committed the act.
    The mentors who are recommended to speak to these students should be Christian minded personnel’s.

  3. Clearly this young man dont want no schooling. They are criminal and should be in jail

    • TESSA BARTHLEY wanted life! It was taken from her. Where is the GUN that SHERFIELD BOWEN used to SHOOT TESSA BARTHLEY? 🤔 👀
