MOUNT CLEMENS, MI – A 15-year-old Eastpoint High School student has been charged as an adult after he allegedly stabbed another student last week at the school.
The Macomb County District Attorney’s Office said on Wednesday it had authorized an adult arrest warrant against the teenager on a charge of assault with intent to murder. The teenager was arraigned in the 38th District Court where the bond was set at $ 500,000 in cash, bail, with the condition of a GPS tether if the bond is posted and the teenager is released, according to a press release from County Attorney’s Office Peter Lucido.
The charges stem from a June 1 incident at schools where the suspect allegedly stabbed another student multiple times before running away from the school and being pursued by police. The victim in the case is said to have sustained non-life threatening injuries from the stabbings and is expected to recover. The victim and the teenager accused of stabbing him knew each other according to the police.
The identity of the two students has not been made public.
In the statement from Lucido’s office, the department reminded people that the accused is innocent until proven guilty, but also added that “this charge today should be a warning to all students in Macomb County. that violent acts of this nature, whether against another student or member staff, will never be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
