Surrey RCMP have effectively locked down a Newton high school after a student was sent to hospital following an armed assault Monday morning.

Panorama Ridge Secondary was placed on hold and secure, a procedure that prevents unauthorized persons from entering the school, round 11:30 a.m after a male youth was assaulted with an undisclosed weapon outside of the school.

The student was taken to hospital in stable condition.

Surrey RCMP said in a statement that they believe the assault was related to an ongoing dispute between parties who are known to each other.

“There is no indication of an on-going risk to safety at the school however; there will be in increased police presence as the investigation continues,” the RCMP said.

There has been no report of an arrest and the RCMP says the school will remain under hold and secure protocol until the safety of all students is confirmed.
