Police investigating brutal school bullying video

Police said they have been made aware of a three-minute long video in which a girl was brutally beaten, kicked and stomped on by her peers at a primary school which, based on her uniform, appears to be located within the Port of Spain area. 

However, while the matter is being looked into, sources said that no official report has been made.

The disturbing video shows two girls assaulting and even violently choking another child, causing the child to double over in pain and break out into screams.

However, police said that the video may not be recent and may be in circulation due to the recent increase in reports of violence and indiscipline in schools.

Police said however that the matter is expected to be looked into and officials from the school which police believe the students are attached to, are expected to be contacted today.

Update: Education Minister Anthony Garcia says the video now in circulation is over a year old. 

He said the matter was resolved amicably.
