Police arrest 3 young boys after two Saskatoon schools vandalized

Police arrested three young boys after two schools in Saskatoon were vandalized overnight.

It’s the second time this week that police responded to multiple calls of schools getting trashed.

It was just after 1 a.m. CST when officers were called to Pleasant Hill Community School on the 200 block of Avenue S S. They arrived to find someone had smashed in the glass by the main entranceway to get into the school.

They were investigating that scene when a second call came in that a break-and-enter was in progress at King George Community School, about nine blocks away on the 700 block of Avenue K S.

Abuse victim forced to give her baby up for adoption was let down by police, says watchdog

A domestic abuse victim whose baby was subsequently put up for adoption was failed by South Wales Police, the police watchdog has concluded.

The teenage mum was initially not treated as a victim of abuse despite eyewitness evidence of an assault, of which he has now been convicted, and evidence of abusive messages.

Her local authority, the Vale of Glamorgan, is also now being investigated over its handling of her case, which saw it enrol her on joint counselling sessions with her abusive partner.

The father of the 18-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, believes the public bodies’ handling of the allegations led to her child, now two, being taken away from her against her will.
