BOSTON - A student was taken to a hospital Thursday after he was stabbed during a fight in a bathroom at Washington Irving Middle School in Massachusetts, according to officials.
A fight broke out between two students Thursday morning at the middle school in Roslindale, Boston Public Schools officials told Boston 25 News. Authorities said a male student was stabbed during the fight and taken to the hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
A robocall sent out to parents stated that the alleged stabber was arrested soon after the incident outside of the school. Boston police did not immediately confirm the arrest.
