Police investigating after student stabbed at Mississauga high school
Police are investigating a non-fatal stabbing incident that took place at a Mississauga high school on Feb. 12.
Mary Zammit, the principal of Clarkson Secondary School, recently confirmed, via an open letter to parents and families, that an "altercation between two students that involved a weapon" broke out at the school at 10:45 am.
Shortly after noon, Peel police said that a victim suffered stab wounds over the course of the incident.
The victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say one youth has been taken into custody.
Police say the altercation was an isolated incident and that there is no threat to student safety at this time.
In the letter, Zammit says that the families of the students involved have been contacted and no other students were impacted by the incident.
"We take these situations very seriously and wanted to make sure you had this information. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. The school will be conducting its own investigation once the police investigation is complete," Zammit wrote.
"We will do everything we can to ensure an incident like this does not happen again."
