A 10-year-old boy reported he was stabbed by a fellow student with a pair of scissors while riding a bus to school.

The student said he was stabbed in the shoulder by a female student while they were riding to school Aug. 16, according to a police report. They attend Green Pastures Elementary School, 4300 N Post Road, in Spencer.

The boy told police the girl said she should have cut his eyes out after she stabbed him, according to the report.

He said he told the bus driver he was stabbed, but that the driver told him to sit down. He said he also told a teacher, who told him to sit down and that he would be all right, according to the report. A school volunteer heard him and called the boy's mother, the report states.

The boy's mother told police she was upset with school officials for not helping her son or telling her about the incident, according to the report. She reported that she took her son to get a tetanus shot.

The reporting police officer, Kris Hunter, said the victim “had a puncture wound that appeared to be consistent with the size of scissors.”

School administrators are investigating the allegations, Superintendent Karl Springer said.

“We take student safety seriously and will continuously strive to provide a safe environment for all students,” he said. “If discipline measures are taken, the student code of conduct will be followed.”

After the investigation is complete, action will be taken if necessary on school personnel, a district spokeswoman said.
