Two teens were stabbed yesterday during a Staten Island high school knife attack, according to SILive. A third teen, 16-year-old Larry Adeyanju, was arrested and charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. According to police, Adeyanju was hauled to the dean's office at Curtis High School after the stabbings—where he made a very unsuccessful attempt at hiding the bloody knife. It sounds like teens at the school aren't very surprised by the incident, or the increase in security thereafter: “It’s Curtis. We’ll get over it,” said freshman Raquel Rodriguez.
All three teens involved in the attack live together in a community residence in New Brighton. One victim, a 15-year-old, suffered stab wounds to his chest and abdomen, while the other, an 18-year-old, was stabbed in his left arm—the victims are stepbrothers, as well. Department of Education spokeswoman Margie Feinberg confirmed the incident took place, and added that it spilled outside of Curtis High School: “There was a fight in the school and it continued outdoors. Two students were stabbed and taken to the hospital. A suspect has been arrested. The school is cooperating with police.”
