A 17-year-old student of Camperdown High School is in hospital after he was stabbed and robbed of his cell phone near Up Park Camp on South Camp Road in Kingston on Tuesday.

He is in serious, but stable condition.

The sixth form student was reportedly coming from extra classes when he was attacked. The robber stole his cellphone and stabbed him below the rib. He was found in a ditch by a member of the JDF.

Education Minister Senator Reid told RJR News that the frequent attacks on students for their personal items should spark an awareness that lives are sacred and important.

“We are now moving to set a new standard of rejection that maiming and abusing our children (are) certainly not acceptable,” he declared.

  2. There is no material thing on this earth could have me hold onto it and get hurt in the process. I would just throw it give him and run off. Because these hungry piece of shits care zero about human lives. U can replace a phone but not ur life

    1. You have bloodthirsty people out there who do not really want the personal items; just want to draw others’ blood. This is bigger than the items these hound dogs run off with, this is demonic. If the phone is all the thief wanted, the thief would not cause any physical harm, it’d take the phone and boogie.

  6. Once again, we as parents, need to pressure the Government to have the cell phone service providers implement a IMEI check list for stolen and lost phones. These greedy providers do not want that checklist mandate because it will see their profits diminish by a very small percentage point.
    If a phone is reported lost or stolen it must not be allowed back into any service provider’s data base without the consent of the registered owner. Take the profit out of stealing phones. This is a simple software fix. Save our children Please.

    1. Common sense clearly isn’t common, Willy. They do not care about the safety of our children. Until one of their children gets nabbed and a sharp object punctures their lungs, they will continue to turn a blind eye to this serious matter. Tracking a device is as simple as activating a calling card. SMH…
