A Summit County Sheriff’s deputy was stabbed by a 12-year-old student at a school in Akron, authorities say.

According to Lt. Bill Holland of the Summit County Sheriff’s Department, the deputy was working security detail at Bridges Learning Center on Dorcas Avenue when the attack happened Thursday morning.

Holland says the deputy was stabbed when the student threw a pair of scissors, striking the deputy in his right side, just under his rib cage. The gash created by the scissors, left an inch-and-a-half deep wound.

The deputy was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for the injury. According to Holland, the deputy is believed to be in good condition.

According to Holland, the attack occurred when the student was called into a conference room with the school’s assistant principal and the sheriff’s deputy. As the assistant principal and the deputy were talking in the back of the room, the student grabbed the scissors from a desk and flung them at the deputy. The deputy pulled the scissors from his body and then proceeded to take the student to the ground, cuffing him and placing him under arrest.

Holland says the student is currently being held at the Summit County Juvenile Detention Facility. He has been charged with two counts of felonious assault in the attack.

Holland says the deputy was assigned a Kevlar vest, but he was not wearing the vest at the time of the attack.
