The 14-year-old boy who stabbed a fellow Luther High School freshman on the first day of school last week is facing a charge of “assault and battery with a sharp or dangerous object with intent to injure.”
Luther Police Chief David Randall said the district attorney’s office agreed with the charge against the boy who remains in juvenile custody on a $50,000 bond, and has been arraigned. The case is moving through the judicial system and Chief Randall said many witness statements have been taken by LPD and school administrators.
The attack occurred during a morning school assembly on August 16.
Meanwhile, the victim is home and healing from her numerous stab wounds. And the high school is moving forward with normalcy, including spirit week activities to celebrate the new school year. Counselors from A Bright Tomorrow Counseling Service and others remain available to talk with students, especially the many who witnessed the attack.
