Columbia Middle School Student Stabbed After School Bus Fight

ADELANTO-(  Deputies from the Victor Valley Station were dispatched to a  bus reported to be driving students from Columbia Middle School on Monday afternoon at around 2:40 p.m. The bus was headed northbound on Highway 395 near Air Expressway when students began to fight.

Shortly after a 13-year-old male student was stabbed in the arm by what is believed to be a razor blade. The suspect, described as a heavy set, Hispanic girl with curly brown hair exited the bus and walked northbound on Jonathan street toward Bartlett before the bus driver lost visual per scanner traffic.

The responding deputy from the Victor Valley station learned that another student had accused the victim of making fun of her and when the accusations were denied the suspect used a razor to cut his arm. Per scanner traffic, school officials told deputies the student has had weapons in the past.  The male victim is being transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.

AMR responded on scene to provide medical aid to the injured boy. Deputies were able to retrieve suspect name and address from the school.  Deputies responded to the suspect’s Montezuma street address to make contact.

School district officials told Victor Valley News in a Tuesday morning email to retract the statement about a history of weapons in the past stating it was untrue and that the district did not give deputies that information.

Victor Valley News can not confirm the statement was made by school officials, but can confirm that dispatchers or Victor Valley station deputies per scanner traffic, did relay that information saying that it came from the Adelanto School District. (see update #3).

Adelanto Elementary School District Director of Child Welfare and Attendance, Peter Livingston said, “The district does not have any knowledge of incidents with weapons. The district will work within the confines of EdCode and with local law enforcement in regards to this isolated incident.”
