Fostoria student accused of stabbing

FOSTORIA — A Fostoria Junior/Senior High School student is facing a felonious assault charge for allegedly stabbing another student in the leg.
Fostoria Superintendent Andrew Sprang confirmed Monday there was an incident Feb. 25 in which a student was attacked by another student.
The incident between the two males occurred after school hours, when the two were in a hallway near the school’s weight room.
Fostoria Police Capt. Patrick Brooks said the incident is still under investigation. Officers are reviewing surveillance video from the school and trying to obtain statements from other possible witnesses.
“Charges are pending and will be forthcoming,” said Brooks. He said the alleged assailant is facing charges of felonious assault, a third-degree felony, and a violation of the Safe Schools Act, a first-degree misdemeanor.
The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released, Brooks said.
“All I can say is the situation is being dealt with,” Sprang said. “The student is no longer in school and is facing expulsion.”
