Toronto Police were called to George S. Henry Academy, near Hwy. 401 and Don Mills Rd., around 1:40 p.m. for reports of a stabbing.

The school went into lockdown once police arrived and after video footage was viewed, it was confirmed that a stabbing had taken place.

“When our officers arrived on scene they found that both the victim and the suspect had fled the school and our officers began investigating and reviewing some video,” Duty Insp. Michael Williams said.

Police say a 15-year-old boy approached the victim in the hallway and a verbal confrontation turned into a physical altercation.

The victim received a single stab wound to his torso and made his own way to hospital. He was listed in stable condition Wednesday morning.

Williams said at the scene both the victim and suspect attend the school and appear to know each other.

Cops say the suspect was arrested a short time later after fleeing the area.

The boy, who cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, carry concealed weapon and weapons dangerous. He was to appear in Finch Ave. W. court on Wednesday.
