A school pupil has been stabbed in the back with a pair of scissors at a school in Surrey.
Police were called to George Abbot School in Guildford after the attack was reported at 1.45pm on Wednesday, police said.
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested.
Surrey Police said in a statement: “The victim is believed to have been assaulted by the suspect with a pair of scissors. Members of staff intervened immediately and remained with the suspect until officers arrived.
“The victim suffered a single small puncture wound to his back and has been taken to hospital as a precaution. It is not believed that his injuries are serious.”
The teenage suspect remained in custody on Wednesday afternoon, while both boys’ parents were informed.

“The school has also sent out a message to parents informing them that an incident has taken place.”
