Girl, 13, charged with second degree assault

A 13-year-old girl was charged Friday with second-degree assault for stabbing her 13-year-old ex-boyfriend at their St. Paul junior high school Wednesday, reported the Pioneer Press.

According to the Star Tribune, the girl allegedly cut the boy in the arm and chest with a small knife. He was immediately sent to Regions Hospital, and by the end of the school day, he had already been or was in the process of being released, school officials said.

The boy was not seriously hurt, reported the Star Tribune, but the girl could face expulsion from Highland Park Junior High School.

According to the Star Tribune, the case is being handled in juvenile court, and her name cannot be released because of her age. She remains in the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center.

The girl was immediately arrested and suspended from school, reported the Pioneer Press. A mandatory referral to the district for expulsion will be made.
