HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Police are investigating after a student allegedly cut another student with a box cutter at a Hartford school on Thursday.

Hartford police tweeted that officers responded to Capital Preparatory Magnet School, at 1304 Main Street, for an emotionally distressed student who cut another student and friend in the leg with a box cutter.

Police say the emotionally distressed student then walked into the principal’s office crying after the incident. That student is now in police custody and police say “a juvy referral is likely.”

The injured student suffered a minor cut that may need stitches. All students are safe and the incident remains under investigation.
