Two Jersey City Students Attacked During Lunch Break
Two Jersey City high school students were seriously injured when they were attacked during their lunch break.
It wasn’t clear what sparked Tuesday’s attack, which happened around noon at a site near Ferris High School. Officials say the 16- and 17-year-old victims were allowed to be off school grounds at the time.
Police spokesman Stan Eason says one victim was stabbed in the shoulder with a sharp object, believed to be a knife. The other was hit in the head with a baseball bat, but their injuries aren’t considered life-threatening.
Eason says at least four young men took part in the attack, and at least one is believed to be a Ferris student. Police believe the attack wasn’t random and the teens knew their assailants.
No arrests have been made.
