Teen with tweezers stabs enemy in school lockerroom

A teenage tussle in a high-school locker room ended in bloodshed and criminal charges yesterday in Wilmington.

Delaware State Police charged a 14-year-old Hockessin boy with assault and carrying a concealed dangerous instrument in the 12:40 p.m. attack inside the A.I. DuPont High School in Greenville.

The two ninth-graders, both 14, were arguing in the boy’s locker room when one lunged at the other and stabbed him in the back with a pair of metal tweezers, state police said. The victim chased the alleged stabber, who was able to escape. The victim was taken to the school nurse and transferred to Christiana Hospital, where he was treated and released, troopers said. The alleged stabber was arrested and released after posting $500 bail.
