Bryan Police Respond to Altercation at Bryan High
On January 15, 2010 at 8:00am, the Bryan Police Department and the Bryan Fire Department responded to a report of a stabbing at Bryan High School, located at 3401 East 29th Street. Officers arrived at the school and secured the scene and began the preliminary investigation. The Bryan Fire Department responded and transported one juvenile female victim to St. Joseph’s Hospital.
The incident occurred at the bus loading and unloading area before the start of the school. The incident did not take place within the school building. This was an isolated incident and only involved two juveniles who had known each other previously. The incident quickly escalated and concluded with an Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
Members of the Criminal Investigation Division responded to assist in the investigation. The juvenile suspect was contacted at Rudder High School and taken in police custody. The suspect is currently at the Juvenile Detention Center on a charge of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. The juvenile victim was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital where she was treated for her injuries and released. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon is a First Degree Felony which is punishable with a confinement from 5 to 99 years or life in prison; and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000.
The Bryan Police Department would like to acknowledge members of the Bryan Independent School District who responded to this incident and thank them for their assistance. Their assistance facilitated the rapid conclusion to this unfortunate event.
