SAN ANTONIOUpdate (9 a.m. Nov. 17): A student at Legacy of Educational Excellence High School was arrested for cutting another student in a hallway earlier this month, according to court documents.

The male student, 17, was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony, records with the Bexar County Jail show. His bond is set at $75,000.

KSAT is not naming the suspect because he is a student at the school. He will be identified if a grand jury indicts him.

His arrest warrant affidavit states that the victim, 16, was walking in a hallway with the suspect on Nov. 6 when the suspect suddenly cut him in the abdomen.

The victim walked into an office to ask for help and was taken to the hospital.

The suspect fled the school and was later identified by NEISD. A warrant for his arrest was issued on Nov. 11.

NEISD released the following statement on Friday morning.

“NEISD will not tolerate weapons and/or violence on our campuses. We will work with appropriate law enforcement to help prosecute to the fullest extent possible.”
