A 14-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing another freshman with a pocket knife at Bennett High School Tuesday morning, according to authorities.
The victim was stabbed in the left forearm at about 10:15 a.m., according to a Buffalo police report. An ambulance was called to the scene but the victim's mother declined ambulance transportation for her son and took him to the hospital herself, Buffalo Schools spokeswoman Elena Cala said.
Buffalo police told The Buffalo News on Tuesday there had been no stabbing at the school, but that a knife was recovered after a fight.
The 14-year-old, whose name was not disclosed by authorities, was charged with second-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He also will face consequences based on the school district's code of conduct, Cala said.
