  • Girl In Quebec Elementary School Stabbed By Boy

ALMA, Que. — Provincial police say a girl in a Quebec elementary school was stabbed Tuesday afternoon during a dispute with a schoolmate.


Police spokesman Hugues Beaulieu said there was an altercation between two students at the Saint-Pierre elementary school in Alma in Quebec's Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region.


He said a boy pulled out a knife and stabbed the girl, reported to be in fourth grade. She was taken to hospital but suffered only superficial wounds.


The boy was taken into custody by police officers and social services, but Beaulieu says it's too early to say what will happen to him. He did not divulge the ages of the children involved.


Students who were present during the incident and school personnel were questioned by investigators.


Alma is about 175 kilometres north of Quebec City.
