A 16-year-old boy has been arrested after a teenager was stabbed to death in front of his classmates in a Brisbane park.
According to police, paramedics responded to a call after 4pm on Thursday and found a 16-year-old boy with knife wounds to his stomach and legs in a park in Kelvin Grove.
The teenager’s condition is serious but stable and he is in hospital.
Kelvin Grove State College (KGSC) confirmed on Friday that the victim was a student at the school.
“One of our students was injured last night in an incident in a park in front of our school,” KGSC Executive Director Joel Buchholz said in a newsletter.
“I want to assure you that the student will be looked after and well supported.”
“Please understand that we must respect the privacy of the student and his family at this time and therefore we cannot provide further details.”
The alleged attack took place in front of other students, he said.
“This incident was witnessed by several students and we are offering counseling services to anyone who needs support.”
According to police, several people left the scene after the stabbing before a 16-year-old boy was arrested later that night.
The two teenagers were known to each other, police said.
The arrested teenager has been charged with grievous bodily harm and will appear in the Brisbane Children’s Court at a later date.
