KINGSTON, Jamaica — The University of Technology’s (UTech) administration is currently locked in discussions following an incident last night where a male student was beaten by a security guard.

The incident happened after the student was allegedly found in a compromising position with a male peer, upon which he was set upon by a mob, a UTECH senior staff member confirmed.

Security officers brought the student to a small room by the entrance to the school where one guard punched and slapped him several times.

Videos of the incident have since been broadcast on popular website, YouTube.
