Authorities in Fayetteville have accused a teenager of stabbing a high school classmate during a fight over a doughnut.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said 17-year-old Robert Wallace is charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon after 16-year-old Teonia Brinson was stabbed in the stomach Wednesday morning at Westover High School in Fayetteville.
Officials say the two exchanged words after Wallace refused to sell Brinson a doughnut.
Brinson was taken by ambulance to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. She was treated and released for wounds that were not life threatening.
Wallace was released from custody on a $2,000 bond.
