BLACKSTONE, MASS. (WHDH) - One child needed stitches and another is expected to face charges after police said a 12-year-old boy allegedly cut a classmate with a razor during an incident in a middle school in Blackstone on Thursday.

Blackstone police said a school resource officer responded around 8:30 a.m. at Frederick W. Hartnett Middle School after being told about a fight between two students. 

One of the students, age 12, allegedly had a razor and cut his 11-year-old classmate’s hand during the incident, according to police.

Blackstone-Millville Regional School District Superintendent Jason DeFalco sent a message home to middle school families on Thursday, saying in part, “The incident was an isolated situation between the two students and there was no threat at any time towards the school itself.”

“This situation is being carefully dealt with while exercising the utmost level of discipline,” DeFalco continued. “All children must be safe in our schools and anything less will not be allowed in BMRSD.”

The 12-year-old, police said, is expected to be summoned to Milford Juvenile Court at a later date.
