Police have upgraded charges against a teenage boy who is accused in the stabbing of a fellow Mount Vernon student.
According to police, a 15-year-old student was arguing with Joseph Ogilivie, 16, near the Mount Vernon High School library Monday when the older student pulled out a 5-inch kitchen knife and stabbed him in the stomach.
The victim was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition, suffering from a punctured lung. Ogilivie was initially accused of disorderly conduct, but now he faces a felony assault charge.
Mount Vernon High School Principal James Rutter says the school is going to step up security to try and prevent a similar incident from happening again. On Tuesday, however, another Mount Vernon High School student was arrested for allegedly bringing a knife to school.
?The superintendent is on it,? Rutter says. ?We're going to get metal detectors throughout the building and make sure no one [is] leaving things outside.?
Mount Vernon High School is planning an assembly for parents to discuss the stabbing on Feb. 9.
