JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 17-year-old student at Wolfson High School was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

The suspect was involved in a fight with another Wolfson High student Wednesday morning.

Police said, the victim approached the suspect in the hallway and began hitting the suspect several times in the face.

JSO said during the fight, the suspect removed a pocket knife from the pocket of his sweat shirt and hit the victim twice with the knife causing two large lacerations on the victim's forearm and left tricep.

The suspect told police that he brought the knife to school Wednesday because he was terrified of the victim.
