A teenager has been charged in connection with an alleged serious assault outside a Dundee school.
Police were called to St Paul’s RC Academy in Gillburn Road, in the Kirkton area of the city.
The incident is alleged to have happened just before 1pm on September 28.
It is believed that the alleged assault happened after a fight broke out between pupils.
A 50-year-old man was then allegedly hit as he reportedly tried to break up the fracas.
It is understood he was driving past the scene at the time of the incident.
Police Scotland launched an investigation into the incident, saying they were following “positive lines of inquiry”.
A spokeswoman for the force confirmed that a youth has been charged with assault.
She said: “A youth has been charged with a serious assault on a 50-year-old man.”
The spokeswoman added that “inquiries into the incident were continuing”.
Councillor Gregor Murray — who serves as the convener of Dundee City Council’s children and family services committee — had previously urged anyone with information about the alleged incident to contact Police Scotland on 101.
A spokesman for Dundee City Council said: “It would not be appropriate to say anything further at this stage.”
Coldside councillor George McIrvine, who is also the parent of a pupil at St Paul’s Academy, said: “I am pleased to hear that someone has been charged in connection with this.
“If someone is found guilty of this type of behaviour, I would hope that Police Scotland and the city council’s children’s and families services committee deal with it appropriately.”
Mr McIrvine said he would contact the school directly to discuss the incident.
