CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Police in Logan County say a student was stabbed during a fight at Chapmanville High School.

It happened just before 3 p.m. Monday.

Chapmanville Police say two boys were fighting when one apparently pulled out a pocketknife and stabbed the other.

The principal tells WSAZ.com that it happened in the hallway during dismissal.

Corporal Tucker with Chapmanville Police says both boys are juveniles. He says one had a history of bullying the other. When the alleged bully punched the other boy, that boy pulled out a pocketknife and stabbed the other in the neck and arm.

The stabbing victim was taken to the hospital, the suspect has been taken into custody.

Tucker says the stabbing suspect acquired the pocketknife from another student earlier in the day. He'll be charged with malicious wounding, according to Tucker.
