Teen stabbed at N.Y. school week after fatal knifing of classmate

A student at a Westchester County high school stabbed a teenage classmate Thursday — the third act of violence involving a pupil there in the past eight days, authorities said.

Officers were called to New Rochelle High School just before 9 a.m. after a report of a slashing on its grounds.

They found a 16-year-old boy with two “puncture-type wounds” on the left side of his torso.

The wounded student was rushed to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

That 15-year-old boy was allegedly the same student who was attacked at a New Rochelle pizza parlor on Wednesday, according to News 12 Westchester.

A little more than a week ago, on Jan, 10, another student, Valaree Schwab, 16, was killed.

Schwab was stabbed with a steak knife amid a wild lunch-hour fight at a local Dunkin Donuts, local police said. Z’inah Brown, 16, is charged with murder.
