Stabbing Investigation - C15-193909 On September 14, 2015 at approximately 2:20 p.m., officers and paramedics responded to a school located in the 6700 block of Betsworth Avenue after receiving a report that a student had been stabbed in the upper body while in an Industrial Arts class.
The school, including another school nearby was placed under lockdown as a precaution.
A 14-year-old male victim was located and transported to hospital. A 14-year-old male suspect was also located at the scene and taken into custody.
Members of the West District Crime Unit continued to investigate.
The investigation quickly progressed and it was determined that the two males involved are close friends. While in class, the males were given instructions to complete an assignment using an "exacto" knife. At some point, the suspect flipped the knife in the direction of the victim striking him in the upper body.
Staff members were immediately on hand and assisted the victim by administering first aid. The suspect was taken to another area within the school and held for police.
The victim has since been treated and released for a minor injury.
It has been determined that the incident was not criminal in nature, however a poor choice involving horseplay.
