A student was stabbed in the face and a school official assaulted according Onslow County Sheriffs Captain Rick Sutherland.

He says it happened at Swansboro High School in Onslow County Thursday.

The school resource officer was called in to investigate the stabbing and multiple assaults that happened on a school bus and at the high school.

A 15 year old is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill and assault on a government official.

The Jacksonville Daily News reports both the victim and the suspect are girls. The victim, the paper says, is a freshman at the high school.

Authorities say the 15 year old stabbed a student in the face and then assaulted a school official who tried to intervene.

The Daily News reports the school official was an assistant principal at Swansboro High School.

No word on the condition of that student.

    The school system is the problem too. Under the policy my child goes to school at I read that if children brings weapons to school they can get a choice between,OSS for 10 days, ISS and some other options(I don't remember). Back when I attended school if you brought a weapon you were not allowed back in school.

    I very much agree with Robert. The worst seed can have the greatest parents or the kindest soul can become of a rotten home. You never can tell what the future holds.

    To the one who posted To Curtis, you are exactly right. I have a fifteen year old step son. His mother and I have raised him the best we could. We kept him in church and even home schooled him for quite a while. With everything we have done, he still began to give us such a hard time early last year, he finnally got in enough trouble to get sent off for a while. It doesn't seem to matter any more how well you raise your kids, some of them just end up doing what they want whether it be right or wrong. I find most people that make comments like the one Curtis made don't even have experience in what they are commenting on, they just want to run their mouth. The problem is there is not enough punishment now a day's when some one whether it be a child or an adult, when they do something wrong. Just let the under scored like Curtis have their little say.

    You're exactly right. The child does need to be punished and with much more than a slap on the wrist. I do disagree with your remark about the parents. This child is 15 yrs old and very much capable of making decisions on his/her own. This is one of those times when the actions of the child don't necessarily reflect the raising the child received.

    Are you kidding me?

    Well said, Curtis.

    I'd like to address the comment about taking the child away from the parents because they "apparently not done a very good job.". You don't know that for sure. My nephew got into some very serious trouble with law enforcement and it wasn't because his mama didn't raise him right. He was taught right from wrong and he knew better, but did it anyway. He paid his dues and now is a productive member of society. You can't watch your kids all the time. You raise them the best way you know how and try to instill in them the right values. Then all you can do is pray they will live their life with the values you tried to teach them. Not all parents that have children who do bad things were bad parents. I'm not saying that the 15 yr old shouldn't be punished and with more than a slap on the wrist. Just don't critisize the job of the parents when you don't know the details.

    The value of life and/or property was not passed along from the parent/s. This kid needs to be put away until they realize they must respect and treat others properly (not use force)

    What in the world are they doing with a knife in school anyway? The school systems need to put in metal detectors at every entrance, (with all the so called education lottery money that is supposed to be going to our schools).
