Student stabbed at New Rochelle High School

New Rochelle Police are investigating a stabbing that occurred Thursday morning the New Rochelle High School.

At approximately 8:50 a.m. they received a call from high school security that a stabbing had occurred in the school, and the suspect, a 15-year-old student was seen on video leaving the building shortly thereafter.

School staff issued a "hold in place" order after the incident.

Some parents rushed to pick up their children after a student stabbed a fellow student.

Officers and ambulance personnel found a 16-year-old student who had suffered a puncture-type wounds to his left torso. He was rushed to a hospital where he was undergoing treatment. The injuries do not appear to be life-threatening at this time.

This is the third attack in eight days in and near the school.

Several students attacked a 15-year-old student at a pizza shop on Wednesday.

Police said that on January 10, a girl stabbed a classmate, Valaree Schwab, 16, to death at a Dunkin' Donuts.

New Rochelle High School does not have metal detectors but officials said they have increased security since last week's fatal stabbing.
