DORCHESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - A 17-year-old boy has been arrested for stabbing a student at the Jeremiah Burke School in Dorchester, according to the Boston Police Department.

Officers arrived to the school on Monday at around 11 a.m. and found a teen boy suffering from non-life-threatening stab wounds to the shoulder. He was transported to a local hospital for further treatment. Officers were later told that the suspect had fled the school before they arrived. A few hours later, the teen suspect turned himself into police, and was taken into custody without incident.

The teen was arraigned in the juvenile division of Dorchester District Court on a charge of Delinquent to wit: Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon. The judge set bail to $250 and ordered a stay away/no contact order against the victim. He’ll return to court on Oct. 25.
