Middle school stabbing suspect leaves district
The student who allegedly stabbed another at Woodland Middle School two weeks ago is no longer enrolled in the Coeur d’Alene School District.
On March 11, one eighth-grade boy stabbed another multiple times with a pocketknife. The boy was treated at Kootenai Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.
The school was locked down for 15 minutes following the stabbing while police searched for the boy with the pocketknife. He was found a short distance away from the school and booked into Kootenai County Juvenile Detention Center on a charge of aggravated battery, police said.
The Spokesman-Review generally does not publish the names of juveniles accused of crimes, but the newspaper obtained the name of the student and confirmed with the district that he is no longer enrolled.
Citing federal privacy laws, district spokeswoman Laura Rumpler declined to disclose specifics of disciplinary actions.
