Police reports state that on Tuesday, October 7, the teenaged boy was walking in the Paul’s Avenue area when the other student, aged 14, approached him and slapped him.

The 14-year-old then pulled a knife, which the 15-year-old is said to have taken away and inflicted stabs wounds to the 14-year-old student’s body.

The injured student is in stable condition at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.

Meanwhile, the 15-year-old will return to the Family Court next week.
