14-year-old accused of school stabbing
A 15-year-old boy was rushed to hospital after being stabbed in the chest, allegedly by a fellow teenager, after a brawl reportedly broke out among students at a school in the state's Central West.
Emergency services were called to a high school in Orange, about three hours drive west of Sydney, at 2pm Wednesday following reports of a fight.
Officers were forced to use OC spray to break up a large number of students who were fighting while paramedics worked to treat the teenager who had suffered a puncture wound to his chest.
He was taken to Orange Health Service where he underwent surgery for non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been discharged.
Investigations lead to the arrest of a 14-year-old boy at a property in Orange about 5pm Thursday.
He was taken to Orange Police Station and charged with reckless wounding in company.
The teenager was granted conditional bail and will appear before a children's court on August 31.
