A few students in Florida, were arrested after their teacher’s car was stolen and a boy was stabbed for allegedly reporting the theft.

Police arrested six middle school students of Fort Lauderdale, after their teacher’s car was stolen and one student was assaulted because others believed that he snitched on them.

The incident took place last week at the William Dandy Middle School on 2400 N.W, 26th Street.

School staff told police that a 13-year-old boy stole the keys to his teacher’s car and took it for a short joyride. A resource officer soon caught up to the sixth grader and he was arrested.

The next day at school, five students, who are said to be between 13 and 15 years old, attacked a classmate, who they believed snitched about the theft, according to police reports.

The victim was stabbed several times in the leg by a pocket knife, and he suffered minor injuries. He was taken to a hospital.

Three boys and two girls were arrested over the stabbing incident, and they were charged with aggravated assault. They were taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.

The student who allegedly stole the car, was charged with theft of a motor vehicle, and placed in the custody of his parents.
