Longmont Student Stabbed in Back with Scissors by Another Student

Longmont, Colo. (AP) _ Longmont Police say a high school student
has been stabbed in the back several times with scissors but
suffered only superficial injuries.

The 14-year-old girl was attacked Thursday morning in a hallway
between classes at Silver Creek High School. She was treated at
Longmont United Hospital.

Police Commander Craig Earhart says she's expected to make a
full recovery. Earhart says a 14-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of second degree assault. He says the boy is also a Silver Creek student, but there's no indication he knew the victim.

Earhart says the attack appears to be random. No names have been released.
