The EPS first reported the assault in the report for Friday’s day shift, saying they were investigating the incident.

In an interview with the Mercury, Sgt. Evan Handley said the assault occurred in a bathroom. A male youth assaulted another male youth in the bathroom, and a third male youth used a cell phone to record the entire incident. All are students at the school.

The male who committed the assault was arrested on Saturday, and the youth who recorded the incident was arrested on Monday night.

“It’s a situation where we wanted to make sure we investigated the incident as fully as possible, so sometimes we aren’t able to arrest the day of the incident, but members are able to interview both the suspect and the victim the next day,” said Handley.

The names of the suspects cannot be released. 

It's not the only assault officers have been called to in recent days. As a result of a domestic disturbance complaint during Tuesday's night shift, a 25-year-old Estevan woman is facing charges of assault causing bodily harm, assaulting police officer and resisting arrest. She was arrested and lodged in cells until sober and will appear in Estevan Provincial Court in December to answer to the charges.

The Mercury will have more details as they become available.
