Two Hamden students facing charges following fight that led to stabbing | Connecticut News

HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) – Two Hamden teenagers are facing charges following an altercation that led to a stabbing on Monday afternoon.

School officials said the fight happened between two students around 2:15 p.m. near a city bus stop, not far from Hamden High School.

A Hamden student was taken to a hospital with multiple stab wounds on Monday afternoon.

During the fight, a 14-year-old student was stabbed multiple times in the back. He was taken to the hospital for treatment and was in stable condition.

A 13-year-old student was treated for a minor hand laceration. He was charged with second-degree assault.

The 14-year-old is also being charged with third-degree assault.

Both students are in ninth grade and have not been identified. 

Police said they were able to locate a small folding knife.

Both teens are expected to appear in juvenile court on Dec. 13.

The incident followed another from last month when police said a Hamden High School student brought a loaded gun to school.

“I mean with the gun incident a couple of months ago, it wasn’t too surprising, but it’s still worrisome that a kid would break out a knife,” said Misaki Claflin, a senior at Hamden High.

Two teenagers at a high school in Meriden are being charged for their alleged involvement in a video posted on social media that showed what turned out to be a prop gun.

Following Monday’s incident, Hamden police increased their presence around the school.

Also, the school had its crisis team available for students to talk to on Tuesday.
