Two Beacon High School students stabbed

Did anyone hear anything about this? I saw it on Pojo and then it disappeared.


Two Beacon High School students were stabbed Monday afternoon and a suspect was in custody, according to Beacon city police.

The two students were male, as was a third stabbing victim, who was 20, said Detective Sgt. Lou Lucato of the Beacon Police Department. The victims were taken to St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie with non life-threatening injuries.

Lucato refused to release the name of the suspect, who was arrested after the 2:30 p.m. incident on Mattewan Road, near Beacon High School. Lucato said the suspect is a 17-year-old Beacon resident who is not a student at Beacon High School.

Lucato also refused to release the ages of the students. He said the investigation will continue.

Not likely.  But you never know.

Are these things connected? (Assault on Main St)?

Thankfully they will all be okay. One is still in the hospital with a stab wound to his back that barely missed his spine and kidney. The other two were stabbed trying to help him. Nowhere does it mention any of that.
