WASHINGTON — A student has been seriously injured after being stabbed by another student at a high school in Upper Marlboro.

Prince George’s County Police say two students got into a fight at Frederick Douglass High School in the 8000 block of Croom Road around 7:40 a.m. One of the students then produced a knife and stabbed the other.

Upon arrival, police found a 16-year-old male student suffering from a stab wound. He was taken to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The 14-year-old suspect was also taken to a local hospital with minor, non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect is facing assault charges as a juvenile.

Detectives believe the incident stemmed from a previous fight between the two students that carried over to Tuesday, when the suspect pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the victim.
