BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) - A judge has approved the request for a protection order involving a 14-year-old boy accused of stabbing a classmate at a suburban Denver school.

The Broomfield Enterprise reports (https://goo.gl/jMCavs ) Judge Francis Wasserman approved the order Tuesday for the 14-year-old girl who survived the attack. The boy is being held at a juvenile detention center on charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and possession of a weapon on school grounds.

Investigators say the girl was stabbed in the back near a playground at Aspen Creek K-8 school in Broomfield on Thursday and then was airlifted to a hospital. She is expected to survive.

Several students and staff members witnessed the attack, but classes continued afterward. Investigators have not said what led to the stabbing.
