A 15-year-old Permian High School student stabbed after school Tuesday has been treated and released from Medical Center Hospital.
Meanwhile, the 15-year-old suspect has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. He was arrested by Ector County Independent School District police and taken to the Ector County Youth Center.
Permian Principal Danny Gex said the charge would be an expellable offense.
Superintendent Tom Crowe said the victim probably would not face disciplinary action following the fight.
According to information from Public Information Officer Mike Adkins, the two boys confronted each other to fight on the west side of Permian, 1800 E. 42nd St. The suspect pulled his right hand from his jacket and stabbed the victim twice in the left arm and once on the left upper portion of the back.
The victim was taken to MCH with non life-threatening injuries and was treated and released, a hospital spokesperson said.
Ector County Attorney Dusty Gallivan said the suspect had a hearing before a judge Tuesday morning and is still at the Youth Center.
When a juvenile is arrested, if the suspect is not released, a judge has to have a detention hearing within three business days. After that, a hearing is held every 10 business days until the case is resolved.
