UTICA, NEW YORK: A 17-year-old student was caught on camera stabbing his 18-year-old classmate in the hand and back during a violent altercation between two teenagers in an upstate New York high school before being stopped by daring teachers. People in the crowd captured the savage assault that took place on Monday, November 1, 2022, at Proctor High School in Utica on camera and posted it on social media.
In the footage, the boy can be seen rushing at his friend in the school's hallway before lunging at him. The pupil is then shown launching an immediate attack by ramming his foe into a wall. The 17-year-old is seen punching the 18-year-old repeatedly before knocking him to the ground and beating him over the head. The victim can be heard yelling repeatedly that his attacker is holding a knife.
kid really said “it’s over for you” and didn’t even had the knife open. The Asian kid would of die from that stabbed to the neck and shoulder. Asian kid did a excellent job with grabbing the knife and controlling the hands. Asian kid is an Karen refugee. @RenerGracie pic.twitter.com/2hCbJINuZP— fiñg 🛁🦧 (@Fing_th) November 1, 2022
The teen can be heard screaming in fear as his assailant grabs him from behind and says, "He got a knife, he got a knife. You, can see that, right? He got a knife."
The two teens continued to wrestle as a crowd begins to gather around them. The people in the crowd can be heard begging the teenage attacker to "drop the knife." The 17-year-old is still seen wielding an object, which was eventually identified as a knife. The attacker can be seen ignoring the cries to stop the attack and a woman enters the frame and starts to intervene. The crowd can be heard repeatedly yelling, "He got a knife."
A male teacher can be seen approaching the two before he takes the knife away from the attacker. "Are you out of your mind?" he asked. The victim is heard telling the male staff member, "He just stabbed the s**t out of my hands."
The male employee signals for another staff to join, informing his colleague that the attacker is holding the knife in his hand. Three staff employees are seen attempting to separate the two, however, one of the staff members shoves the victim to the ground, while his attacker stood tall.
The altercation was discussed in a joint statement posted to social media by the Utica Police Department and Utica City School District. The post reads, "The teachers took immediate action, without regard for their safety, and attempted to separate the two parties. The teachers grabbed the suspect and forcibly disarmed him, and held him until security staff arrived."
The school nurses treated the 18-year-old victim, who had multiple stab wounds on his hands and back, before transporting him to a hospital. The injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening, according to the police.
According to the Daily Sentinel, police have charged the 17-year-old with attempted first-degree assault, a class C felony, and fourth-degree weapon possession post-investigation.
