A Grade 10 pupil was stabbed with a pair of scissors by a Grade 8 pupil outside the Eric Louw High School in Musina, Limpopo, police have said.

Lieutenant Colonel Ronel Otto said: “The boy was stabbed in his ribs by the younger boy and was rushed to the Louis Trichardt Medi-Clinic yesterday.”

The 13-year-old boy was brought to the police station by his parents and will be evaluated by probation officers as part of the new child justice act.
