SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 12-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing a 12-year-old girl inside a New York school.

Syracuse Detective Sgt. Thomas Connellan says the girl was stabbed once in the forearm at about 7:40 a.m. Wednesday inside the H.W. Smith School, which has students from kindergarten through eighth grade.

He says the injury isn’t life-threatening.

A teacher subdued the boy and he’s in custody. He’ll appear in Onondaga County Family Court later Wednesday on a charge of second-degree assault.

Investigators are looking into what led to the stabbing. Connellan says the two children were believed to have been involved in an ongoing fight.

No names have been released.
