WILLIAMSBURG — A 14-year-old stabbed his schoolmate with scissors in the stomach after an argument over a skateboard on a playground, police said.

The fight took place at around 11 a.m. Thursday on the playground of a school at 215 Heyward St. in Williamsburg, a building that houses the elementary charter school, Beginning with Children and Juan Morel Campos Secondary School, which has sixth through twelfth graders, police said.

But the incident wasn't reported to police until three hours later when the teenager showed up injured at the 90th Precinct Station House on Union Avenue with his mother, explaining that he'd touched the other teen's skateboard and the teen had retaliated by stabbing him in the abdomen with a pair of scissors, police said.

Emergency workers were called to the precinct and rushed the 14-year-old to Woodhull Hospital in stable condition, according to police and fire officials.

Patrol officers went to the school just before 2 p.m. where they arrested the 14-year-old, who's name was not released because he is a minor, and charged him with assault.

The Department of Education didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
