BROOKLYN — A student was stabbed in the stomach outside his Flatbush Avenue high school Thursday afternoon after dismissal, officials said 

The 19-year-old was attacked at about 2:45 p.m. right outside Erasmus Hall, which sits at the corner of Flatbush and Church avenues, according to the NYPD and a spokeswoman from the union representing school safety agents.

The victim walked back into the school after the stabbing and was taken to Kings County Hospital, said an FDNY spokeswoman and the union rep.

Department of Education officials said the victim was not seriously injured. 

“The NYPD immediately responded to a non-school related incident that took place near the Erasmus Hall Campus in Brooklyn after dismissal," spokeswoman Toya Holness said in a statement.

There were no immediate arrests, and the teen was not cooperating with investigators, a police spokesman said. 

The attack happened about a week after a teen was fatally stabbed and another critically wounded by classmate inside their Bronx high school.
