The police say they’ve taken a woman into custody following an incident at a school in Port Royal where a 10-year-old boy was assaulted on Tuesday.

The Kingston Eastern Police say about 2:30 p.m., the boy was among a group of students who were reportedly heckling the woman.

The woman reportedly grabbed the boy’s neck.

The police say a teacher quickly intervened and separated the woman from the boy.

The child remains in hospital.
