Suspect nabbed in stabbing of Saltfleet HS teen

At almost the same time as a 15-year-old teen was fatally struck by a hit-and-run schoolmate I on the west mountain, another 15-year-old student is in hospital after being stabbed near Saltfleet High School in Stoney Creek.

Hamilton police said the stabbing was a targeted  robbery that occurred close to Saltfleet District High School, in the area of Highland Road and Upper Centennial Parkway, shortly before 3 p.m. Police have made an arrest.

The student was taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition, according to a statement from the school.

In a message to parents, Saltfleet Principal Glenn Cooke wrote, “as a school community, we extend our thoughts to the student and their family and wish them strength in their recovery. Incidents such as this are very distressing. These situations can impact each of us differently and may result in a variety of feelings. Parents, guardians, and caregivers are encouraged to access HWDSB tips for adults supporting children and youth after distressing events: http://hwdsb.info/distressing. Social workers will be available at the school for those students who need to access support.”
