Police are investigating a stabbing involving two Concord High School students Tuesday afternoon in the area of South Fruit Street.

One student suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident, which was reported just before 3 p.m., shortly after classes were dismissed for the day, officials said.

“From our reports, we surmise that the two students were engaged in a physical altercation, and then one of the students chose to pull out a knife,” Concord High Principal Tom Sica wrote in a letter to the school community Wednesday afternoon. “At that time, students who witnessed the event called 911.”

Exactly what prompted the altercation midway between the high school and Memorial Field remains unclear. Concord police Sgt. Matthew Casey said police are limited in what they can release because the incident involves two minors.

“There is no concern for public safety at this time as all involved parties have been located,” Casey wrote in a statement Wednesday night.

Police said their investigation is ongoing. In the meantime, Sica said he hopes communication with the school community will encourage those with information to come forward to police.

“Given the serious nature of this event, we believe it is important to share this information with our school community,” Sica wrote in his letter.

Anyone who may have witnessed the stabbing or has information is asked to call Detective Paul Shaughnessy can be reached at 230-4934 and Sgt. Casey can be reached at 230-3734.
