Boy, 8, Slashes Classmate With Blade During Fight


NEW YORK -- An 8-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday after allegedly slashing a classmate with a double-edged razor blade during a lunchtime altercation.

The incident took place at P.S. 132 in the Morrisania section of the Bronx.

School officials said the 8 and 9-year old boys exchanged words before the younger one pulled out a razor and cut the other student in the neck.

The blade was recovered in the school’s playground.

The victim's wound required stitches.

The 8-year old told police that he brings the razor to school because some kids don’t like him.

The boy faces assault and weapons possession charges and will be tried as a juvenile.
