Student stabbed outside Toronto Catholic high school

  • September 27, 2019

A student from Neil McNeil Catholic High School in Toronto was rushed to hospital after being stabbed in an altercation outside the east-end school Sept. 26.

During the lunch hour, while some students were off school premises, a group of Neil McNeil students was accosted by another group of males when the student was stabbed. He made his way back into the school where police and emergency personnel found him. The student was taken to hospital where paramedics say he was in serious but stable condition.

“The school was placed under hold and secure as a precaution for a short period of time,” said Shazia Vlahos, chief of communications and government relations with the Toronto Catholic District School Board, in an e-mailed statement to The Catholic Register. “Police are continuing to investigate and we do not have any additional information at this time.

“Incidents such as this, though thankfully rare, can be very upsetting to all of us. Supports will be put into place for students as needed.”

Toronto Police said there were no other injuries and had no suspect information.
