An 18-year-old pupil from Indwe Secondary School has been stabbed on the school grounds.
According to police spokesperson Cpt Malcolm Pojie, the 16-year-old suspect will face assault charges. He is currently in parental custody.
The victim is in hospital in stable condition.
In a separate incident this week, a 16-year-old pupil was stabbed and declared dead on the scene just outside the school premises. Two more victims were transported to hospital for treatment.
“The suspect fled the scene but police were able to trace him to Dobsonville in Soweto, where the 19-year-old was arrested,” the police confirmed in a statement.
