The young person that was reportedly stabbed is a pupil at Francisco Middle School located in the Bay Area – yet the juvenile that was detained for allegedly dishing out the violent act was not characterized as a student at the aforementioned California intermediate school, according to a report by KRON.

Medics brought the victim to a near-by hospital for treatment of “non-life-threatening injuries,” as police described, according to the outlet.
SFPD officers also detained another juvenile while on the scene; whom is apparently suspected of carrying out the stabbing of the Francisco Middle School student.
That said, SFPD remained on the scene thereafter investigating the general vicinity. (RELATED: Michigan Middle School Field Trip Ended With Students Pole Dancing)

It is unclear if the juvenile that was detained by SFPD on the scene of the alleged crime was also a student at the aforementioned middle school.
Both the alleged perpetrator nor the victim have not been publicly named.
