Student Stabbed At Sheboygan Lutheran
SHEBOYGAN - A student was stabbed inside a private Christian high school in Sheboygan.
Sheboygan Lutheran High School is the last place you'd expect to hear about school violence, but parents are thinking twice after a teen was stabbed by a classmate in front of several other students.
Parents at Sheboygan Lutheran never thought their kids would witness a stabbing at school.
"My daughter was actually there when it happened. She helped the student who was stabbed go to the office,” Lori Wieck said.
It started Wednesday with an argument in a school hallway between two 16-year-old boys. Classes had just ended for the day.
Police say one 16-year-old boy was angry because another student was making fun of one of his friends. So he got a knife from a female classmate and he stabbed the teen.
"He came actually walking to our principal, the student who had been stabbed, and very quickly we called and brought in the authorities,” Jim Pingel the school's Executive Director said.
The victim had a two-inch cut to his chest, but he's expected to be OK. The suspect and the 15-year-old girl who gave him the knife were arrested.
"You definitely would not expect this in a Christian school,” Wieck said.
Now, the school is trying to reassure parents that their kids are safe.
"It's a scary situation I have to admit. It can happen anywhere nowadays,” Wieck said.
The attacker has been kicked out of school, and the school is still debating the punishment for the 15-year-old girl. School administrators say they're going to take a second look at their security procedures.
