2008_12_graha.jpgYesterday afternoon, a 16-year-old boy was stabbed by another student on the third floor of I.S. 49, which is on Graham Avenue in Williamsburg. The school was on lockdown for over 2 hours and a suspect was arrested. NY1 reports, "After parents were allowed to pick up their children, they still remained concerned about their long-term safety in the school, claiming that the school lacks basic security measures like metal detectors." However, the school tried to reassure them, with a letter stating, "I want to assure you that this was an isolated incident. Fights and altercations of similar nature rarely occur." The victim, who attends the Green School for Environmental Careers located inside I.S. 49, is in stable condition at Bellevue.
