Around 12:30 p.m. at the Margarita Muñiz Academy on Child Street (the former Agassiz School).
The student was transported to a local hospital with a stab wound to the upper right torso. BPS says his injuries are not considered life threatening.
Police are looking for four or five male teens, all wearing hoodies, who fled toward Forest Hills. The possible stabber is 18 or 19 and has shoulder-length corn-row braids tinted yellow. One of his accomplices wore a yellow hoodie, another a gray and green hoodie.
BPS released a transcript of the robo-call being made to parents by school leader Dania Vazquez:
As always on Fridays, our students were dismissed at 12:30 and I was saying goodbye to them outside. Quite suddenly, two of our students were attacked across the street from our school by a group of individuals that are not from our community. One of the boys has injuries and we are confident that he will recover. The Boston Police and School Police responded immediately and have started an investigation. We know that this news is difficult to hear.
All of our students were terrific - they all acted appropriately, responding to our directions and expressing their care for their school community. Our staff has been phenomenal, helping to ensure that everyone was safe and supported. We want you to know that safety is extremely important to us for all our students, families and staff inside and outside of the school building.
We are working closely with the Boston Police and School Police to ensure safety for all of our students in both Muñiz Academy and Mission Hill. We will have extra police presence throughout next week.
