Canadian Girl Goes on Mass Stabbing Spree – at least 7 injured...
Staff and students were back at Dunbarton High School having a “normal school day” Wednesday, while the 14-year-old girl charged in Tuesday’s mass stabbing there remained in custody.
Hands and feet in shackles, the teenager appeared in an Oshawa prisoner’s box for a bail hearing Wednesday morning. She is scheduled to appear in youth court again on March 1 as the hearing continues.
The girl, whose identity is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is facing 15 charges, including six counts of assault causing bodily harm, seven counts of assault with a weapon and possession of dangerous weapons.
She appeared in court wearing a grey, long-sleeved shirt and black yoga pants and maintained an expressionless gaze throughout the hearing. While giving her name and date of birth, she spoke in stilted, sing-song speech and when asked if she could hear the proceedings, answered, “Sorta.”
Although the Durham District School Board initially reported that six students and three staff members had been injured in the attack at the Pickering school, Durham Regional Police now say a total of five students and two staff members were injured. Four were sent to hospital for treatment, but their injuries are not considered serious.
DDSB Superintendent John Legere said staff members directly involved in Tuesday’s attack were present and social workers were on site providing support for students and staff at the school.
