San Marcos police are investigating an assault at Owen Goodnight Middle School Tuesday morning in which a 13-year old was jabbed with a pen or pencil.
Two juveniles, ages 13 and 15, were detained by San Marcos Police and placed at the Hays County Juvenile Detention Center for delinquent behavior. Police are investigating whether a third juvenile might have been involved.
The 13-year boy went to a restroom around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday at the school and was followed by three youths who started punching him and one of the youths apparently jabbed him in the side with a pen or pencil.
Police have declined to comment further because the suspects involved are juveniles. KXAN Austin News published a report on its website this afternoon that quoted a San Marcos police sergeant as saying the fight was gang-related; the same report said the student was stabbed with “a silver object” but did not specify that it was pen or pencil.Email | Print
