UPDATE: Elementary School Student Stabbed with Crochet Needle in Dayton
DAYTON -- We still don't know why a fifth grader was stabbed in the back at a Dayton elementary school with a crochet needle by another student. The motive and the stabbing are still under investigation.
Not everyday a CSI team is called to an elementary school and a 12 year old is put in the back of a police car.
School officials made the 911 call just after 9:30 Thursday morning, saying one fifth-grader stabbed his classmate in the back.
Becca received a letter Thursday afternoon, when she picked up her three kids from Cleveland Elementary.
"They just said that a child got stuck with a crochet needle and it was no big deal and they had to go through protocol and go to the corner of the classroom and they sent letters home with all the students," Becca said. "That's something I worry about being in Dayton schools but this is a very good, safe school."
When Monica Fine went to pick up her fifth grader at Cleveland Elementary she already knew what happened. Her son is in the same fifth-grade class.
"They're good kids. Every kid has their problems," Fine said Thursday afternoon.
Despite the initial shock, parents praised the quick action of the school.
"I was very impressed with the handling of the situation," Becca explained.
While Monica says she thinks the fifth grader responsible should be suspended, she points to the tight-knit community within the school and hopes the boy can get help.
"We're here and we have people in the building that want to help," Fine explained.
The fate of the suspect depends on the ongoing school and police investigation.
