Utica police say a student was stabbed multiple times by a classmate during a fight at Proctor High School Monday morning.
Police say staff at the school were notified about a fight in the hallway and came out to find a 17-year-old student stabbing an 18-year-old classmate.
Teachers broke up the altercation and one staff member was able to take the knife from the suspect.
What’s really sad is the fact that their fellow students didn’t even tried to stop the attack.
Instead they decided to put up their phones and film the shocking situation!
A student was jumped from behind by a fellow student who repeatedly stabbed him. Amazingly, the victim was able to protect himself from further stabbings until teachers came and disarmed the attacker and broke off the attack.
