On Thursday, March 21, 2024, at approximately 12:20 p.m., members from Central West Division responded to an unknown trouble call at Father Leo Austin Catholic School located at 1020 Dryden Blvd in Whitby.   Officers arrived on scene and located a youth suffering from a head injury.   He was transported to a local-area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

An on-scene investigation revealed that the victim was struck in the head with a baseball bat by a group of five to six males who left the area in a vehicle.  Investigators believe this to be a targeted attack and there is no risk to public safety.
