A 14-year-old boy has been suspended after stabbing a girl at an

East London primary school.

“We can confirm that the stabbing happened inside the school

premises yesterday.

The boy said he was playing with the girl when this

happened,” said Eastern Cape education spokesperson Malibongwe Mtima.

“Apparently, the girl tried to block the knife with her hands when

she was stabbed.”

The girl, also aged 14, was rushed to hospital where she received

four stitches to the hand.

A case of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm was

opened against the boy.
