Queensland School Locked Down After Two Students Stabbed

A Queensland high school was placed into lock-down after an altercation between students ended with one being taken to hospital.

Emergency services were called to Rosewood State High School, west of Ipswich, at about 11.30am on Thursday.

Queensland Police said preliminary investigations suggest two boys, aged 12 and 13, were approached by a third boy, aged 14, and stabbed.

The 14-year-old boy fled the scene on foot and the school was put into lock-down, police said.

The 12-year-old student was transported to hospital with a serious non-life threatening injury to his abdomen, police said.

A second student was treated on scene for a minor hand injury, a QAS spokesman told 10 daily.

The 14-year-old boy was arrested a short time later and police told 10 daily that officers are talking to him.

It is not believed the three students were known to each other.
