A 14-year-old boy was assaulted Friday morning by three older boys and stabbed with a pair of scissors as he waited for the school bus, police said.
The fight broke out about 8:15 a.m. at the intersection of Clover Lane and Garden Drive. The boy told police he noticed the group approaching him "in an aggressive manner."
The Baker Middle School student said he punched one of the boys in the face because he thought they were going to "jump him." One of the assailants stabbed him with a sharp object that appeared to be a pair of scissors. The victim received cuts to his forearm and back and was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
Police said the injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
