Three people charged after Stanthorpe school lockdown

UPDATE 5.30PM: TWO men have been charged with assault after St Joseph's School was forced into lockdown earlier today.

The 41-and 49-year-old Brisbane men were charged with common assault and trespassing after a disturbance in the High St campus' carpark.

It is alleged the two men entered the school grounds and yelled at staff before shoving two St Joseph's employees.

A 45-year-old woman from Maleny was also charged with trespass.

Stanthorpe police officer in charge Gerard Brady said the trio weren't known to staff members.

St Joeph's principal Andrew Kendall confirmed the school was placed into lockdown as a result of the incident.

He said students' safety was the priority during the incident.

"At no stage were any students at threat or in danger," Mr Kendall said.

The two men were issued with a notice to appear in Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on November 25.

The woman was issued with a notice to appear on September 23.

A QPS spokesman confirmed police were called to St Joseph's High St campus around midday in relation to an alleged assault.

It is believed a person has been taken to Stanthorpe watch-house.

St Joseph's were unable to comment at the time.
