Mother and student facing weapon charges after school dispute: Hamilton police


Hamilton police have charged a student and a mother after a disturbance in a school parking lot.

Shortly before 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, police say they arrived at St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School in Hamilton to a large crowd. Officers at the scene say they learned that the mother allegedly brought an expandable baton to the school while the student allegedly held a knife during a verbal dispute.

The mother was upset about her child being involved in an earlier altercation off school property which had migrated back to the school parking lot,” according to Hamilton Police Service. “School officials were able to subdue the situation before anyone received injuries.”

A 38-year-old woman and a 17-year-old male are facing charges of possession of a dangerous weapon. They were both released from police custody on a promise to appear in court.

Anyone with information on the incident can contact the Mountain Patrol Staff Sergeant at (905)546-3886.
