JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Before the first bell rang at Wolfson High School on Wednesday, students said there was a fight on campus between two teen boys. They say one of them left with a stab wound to the arm.
Senior Ortise Cole said, "He was walking through the hallways, and blood was everywhere."
Since then, social media has been buzzing with students posting concerns about their safety at school. Superintendent Nikolai Vitti told Action News they shouldn't worry.
He said, "This is unacceptable on every level."
Vitti said both boys involved will be disciplined; one was arrested.
"We have given a 10-day outdoor suspension and possible removal from the school to one student," said Vitti. "And the other student that used the knife will be sent to an alternative school and possibly facing expulsion."
Action News was told the victim will be OK. Students said he even posted a photo of himself on Instagram after he was hurt.
The suspect has been identified as 17-year-old Marckenson Jean-Pierre. Police say the victim attacked Marckenson in a hallway, punching him several times in the face.
Police say Marckenson removed a pocket knife and cut the victim twice on his arm. Marckenson said he brought the knife to school because he was afraid of the victim.
Marckenson faces a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
