Police say a youth has been charged with assault with a weapon after a stabbing at Ladysmith Secondary.

Ladysmith RCMP says a teenager was stabbed on Dec 19, 2014. The grade 12 student was walking through the halls and felt a sharp pain, but initially didn’t realize he had been stabbed in the back. He later discovered a small stab wound and was treated in hospital.

Staff Sergeant Dave Herman speaks for the Ladysmith RCMP Detachment.

The teen charged has been released and is scheduled to appear in youth court in Duncan on February 26.
