Boy, 12, stabs classmate, 13, at Long Island school: cops

A 12-year-old boy stabbed his 13-year-old classmate during a fight at their Long Island middle school this week, cops said. 

The two students were fighting in the hallway of Lindenhurst Middle School on North Wellwood Avenue around 12:30 p.m. Monday when the younger boy stabbed his rival in the leg with a 6-inch knife, Suffolk County Police said. 

A school staff member and a police officer both used tourniquets to stop the severe bleeding, authorities said.

“He lost a lot of blood,” Suffolk County Police Deputy Inspector Sean Beran told reporters. “The wound was up on his leg near his groin where there are a lot of arteries and stuff up there.”

The victim was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.

The young suspect was charged with juvenile delinquency, because of his age, police said. 

The stabbing sparked an immediate lockdown at the school, the school district superintendent said in a statement obtained by News 12

Parent Sara Cruz of Lindenhurst told the network her frightened daughter was in tears when they spoke over the phone.

“She just said something happened and she didn’t know what was going on,” Cruz said. “A lot of crying on the phone. She didn’t really say much – I was just trying to calm her down.”

The father of a 13-year-old boy who attends the school told WNBC his son “was able to tell me there was blood everywhere and that’s pretty much it.” 

“You send your kids off to school thinking they’re gonna have a good day and then this occurs,” he said.
