A STUDENT was taken to hospital with head injuries after being assaulted at the bus stop next to his college. The Coulsdon Sixth Form College 17-year-old has been discharged from hospital since the assault in Placehouse Lane yesterday (Thursday). An 18-year-old, said not to be one of Coulsdon's students, has been arrested and is in police custody. A Met police spokesman said police were called to reports of youths fighting in Placehouse Lane/Coulsdon Road, at 4.28pm. He added the 18-year-old was arrested "a short while later" on the 466 bus, whose route includes next-door Coulsdon Road. London Ambulance Service confirmed it sent one ambulance crew to the scene, and took one patient to hospital. Steve Gooch, assistant principal of the college in Placehouse Lane, said the person arrested was not one its students. He added the college, which federated with Reigate College last year, "will not tolerate this type of activity and any student found to be even remotely involved will be permanently excluded."
