(BLOOMINGTON) - A 10-year-old Bloomington boy was taken to a hospital for evaluation after he stabbed a teacher with a pencil.
Monroe County Sheriff's Sgt. Barb Beland says the child got upset during a class and stabbed his teacher with a sharpened pencil. He then ran out of the room.
School officials thought the boy had left the building. They called in Sheriff's deputies. A school counselor found the boy hiding under a table.
Beland says a report will be filed with juvenile probation. The teacher suffered only a minor injury and declined medical treatment.
