Prince George’s new school the target of a break-in: Police

Authorities said a woman was detained Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of attempted burglary outside of Prince George’s South London school.

The Telegraph reports that the woman, who is in her 40s, was apprehended at Thomas’s Battersea School in south London on Wednesday. The suspect is accused of unlawfully breaking into the school on Tuesday and returning the following day.

A scuffle ensued between the woman and police which resulted in her arrest, according to the paper.

“The woman’s background is being fully investigated,” a source told The Sun.

Though Prince George, 4, attended school on Tuesday, the BBC said it was unlikely that he was there at the time of the incident.

The 4-year-old is attending school for half of the day on his current schedule, according to the Mirror.

ABC News reports that Prince George began attending the private school last week. His father, Prince William, and head of the school, Helen Haslem, accompanied him on his first day of school.

Metropolitan Police and the private school are working to review their security protocol following the break-in, BBC also reported.

Thomas’s Battersea has approximately 560 boys and girls aged from four to 13 and about 20 students in each class.

“We are working with the school, which is attended by His Royal Highness Prince George, to review its security arrangements after the incident,” police said. “Police were alerted and officers attended immediately after the issue came to light.”

The woman is being held in a South London police station.
