Stabbing at Upper East Side school leaves two injured


Two teenagers were injured at an Upper East Side high school after one of the children pulled a knife during a fight Friday morning, police said.

The fight broke out just after 10:30 a.m. at East Harlem Scholars Academy Charter High School on East 96 Street, police and sources said.

At one point, one of the 16-year-olds pulled out a knife and stabbed the other in the side, severing his hand in the process, sources said.

Both were taken to an area hospital and arrested, officers said.

The stabbings did not occur in New York City schools or involve public school students.

The Department of Education is dividing the facilities at 320 E. 96 Street between the High School for Climate Justice and the charter school.

The teenage suspect allegedly severed another teenager’s hand in the knife attack, sources say.
