Feedback: Beaver River Student Accused Of Stabbing Another Student With Pencil
A 12 year old Beaver River Central School male student is accused of stabbing another student with a pencil.
"It is considered a dangerous instrument so it does fit the statute," said Undersheriff James Monnat.
Monnat, who was unaware of a motive, said neither student was removed from school.
It's unclear what the school did about the stabbing, but Monnat said the alleged victim's family brought the case to the sheriff's department on June 2.
"It's not normal for us to handle a lot of in-school incidents such as this. However, it was serious enough that the parents thought that the police should get involved in this case," said Monnat.
District Superintendent Leueen Smithling said the school opened an investigation consistent with the student code of conduct.
Smithling said she's unable to disclose if the district disciplined the student because of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
