Police Are Investigating A Group Assault That Occurred At An All-Boys High School In Toronto
The assault reportedly took place in a school washroom and involved multiple students aged 15 to 17.
Toronto Police are investigating a group assault that took place in an all-boys high school located in the city. St. Michael's College School released a statement on Wednesday at 3:00 PM about the incident after the school day was over.
The high school is located at 1515 Bathurst Street, located just north of St. Clair Avenue West. The group assault reportedly took place in the school's bathroom and began circulating on social media after taking place.
St. Michaels school is recognized from the popular film starring Canadian actor Michael Cera, "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World." The film was set in Toronto and the school was used when Scott and Wallace wait for Knives outside her high school.
The all-boys high school did release a statement on the matter, which read "This week, to our shock and dismay, we learned of two incidents that were in clear violation of our Student Code of Conduct. The school has zero tolerance for such behaviour. The school administration promptly conducted an internal investigation, including meeting individually with the students involved and their parents. As a result, swift and decisive disciplinary action has taken place, including expulsions."
While the statement makes it clear that students have been unenrolled at the school, they continue to offer their greatest apologies and stress the disappointment they feel from the assault that took place.
