Ucreview – In Texas City, Texas, a student from Giles Middle School is facing a Class A misdemeanor charge for assault causing bodily injury. The student in question is accused of stabbing her classmate eight times with a pencil.
On Tuesday, the Texas City ISD school experienced an incident.
Sheriff Henry Trochesset of Galveston County stated that their investigation involves identifying the cause of the incident.
Sheriff Trochesset stated that he is uncertain whether the incident was caused by bullying or some other underlying factor, and emphasized the need to gather all relevant information before drawing conclusions. He added that every possible reason for the escalation of the situation is being considered.
According to Trochesset, the individuals involved in the incident are both young girls.
According to a Texas City ISD spokesperson, a 13-year-old student came forward to administrators and a deputy to report that she had been assaulted.
According to a statement, a student from Giles Middle School reported to the campus law enforcement and administrators that she had been stabbed in the arm with a pencil by another student earlier in the day. The administrators conducted a check on the student and found multiple marks on her arm.
The student received treatment from EMS, but she was not taken to the hospital.
In the statement, it was emphasized that the safety of the students is of the highest priority.
The district spokesperson sent a follow-up statement to KPRC 2’s Rilwan Balogun an hour later, stating that upon further investigation, they found that the term “stabbed” was too strong and that “jabbed” would be a more accurate description of the situation.
According to a spokesperson from the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office, the case will proceed in juvenile justice court.
