A Martinez Junior High School student was listed in stable condition Thursday after he was stabbed by another student in an apparently unprovoked attack.
The alleged assailant, described only as a 13-year-old boy, was later taken into custody without incident and was booked into Juvenile Hall on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
His alleged victim, police said, was just 11-years-old. The boy was transported to a local trauma center by helicopter for a stab wound to his back and his injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
No motive for the attack was provided and Martinez police said their investigation into the incident is ongoing.
