An angry St Michael resident is venting her frustration after a rock throwing incident involving students from the Combermere School damaged two private vehicles and a Barbados Water Authority (BWA) water meter close to her home.
The woman, who did not want to be identified, said the incident occurred in Leinester Road, Waterford, St Michael around 4 p.m. today.
She told Barbados TODAY neighbours in the community, located just to the back of the school, witnessed an altercation between two students that later escalated into a rock throwing incident involving other children, despite repeated appeals to the feuding parties to stop.
During the row, the rocks thrown damaged the cap of a water meter at one house, dented one vehicle and resulted in the second car being scraped.
The woman said a report had been filed with police and a complaint was also made to the school’s deputy principal Monica Parris who promised to look into the matter.
Public Relations Officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss confirmed that a formal report had been made and investigations were continuing.
The woman expressed concern about the increasing number of fights and other deviant behaviour occurring after school and said action should be taken to stop the bad behaviour.
