Police in London, Ont., have reportedly taken eight female young offenders in their custody due to their involvement in a bullying case. The police officially stated to the press that the arrests are a result of an investigation which unraveled a case of bullying on a student at a city high school. The student of London South Collegiate Institute was allegedly targeted with physical, emotional and cyber bullying.
All eight of the suspects are separately charged with criminal harassment charges. Police claims that the information confirming the alleged bullying charges was authenticated from direct statements. The investigation was initiated after an anonymous reporting was taken into consideration from the portal of the school’s main website. Police was took notice of a post on “South Cares,” an anonymous online micro-blogging tool on the London South Collegiate website.
Police have specifically notified the press that they are supporting the victims fully and making sure the students were not mistreated but only made to address the charges of bullying behavior laid against them. “The London Police Service and the Thames Valley District School Board have a clear message. Bullying will not be tolerated in our community,” said a London Police press release. “The behaviour exhibited by these students is reprehensible and will be appropriately dealt with by the Criminal Justice System.” The investigation is continuing and police say additional charges may be laid.
