Four students at New Westminster Secondary School have been arrested after their alleged involvement in a physical confrontation at the school.

One student was allegedly assaulted by three other students when a previous argument escalated, according to a joint media statement from the New Westminster Police Department and the school district.

"This incident was between specific students. No one was seriously injured and there's no risk to any other students at the school," said Sgt. Geoff Scott with New Westminster police.

"This was an isolated incident between specific students and no one was seriously injured. There is no risk to any other students at the school," said Sgt. Jeff Scott in a news release. 

"This is very rare. We don't get a lot of calls for anything like this, so we're glad that it's quite rare," Scott said. "New Westminster Secondary School and the district doesn't condone bullying or harassment of any kind." 

The school district said it does not condone fighting, bullying or harassment of others on or off school property, and it is working with police and the school to prevent future violent incidents.

Scott wouldn't comment on whether the student who was assaulted was among the four people arrested.
