A youth has been sent to the hospital after being stabbed at a Delta elementary school.

The Delta Police Department responded to a stabbing that took place on April 12 at 9:40 pm.

According to Delta Police, the victim was stabbed on the grounds of McCloskey Elementary School.

Officers arrived on the scene and provided first aid to the 15-year-old victim, who had stab wounds. The victim was transferred to a local hospital and is now in stable condition.
