Fifth-grader charged after stabbing two students


An 11-year-old Sugarloaf School student was charged with two counts of aggravated battery Tuesday after stabbing two students with scissors.


There were no life-threatening injuries reported in the May 7 incident.


One injured student, also 11, received six stiches to close the wound on his arm. The other student, age 10, received cuts that did not require stitches.


Early reports indicate there was a verbal altercation that day among the suspect and one of the injured students.


The Department of Juvenile Justice booked the suspect student Tuesday afternoon.
