October 08, 2002|BY SUN STAFF WRITERS

Howard County police arrested a 16-year-old girl yesterday on charges that she stabbed a boy as they rode the bus home from school.

The girl, an 11th-grader who was not identified because she is a minor, got into an argument with a 10th-grade boy about 2:30 p.m. as the pair rode home from the Homewood School in Ellicott City, police said. She then stabbed the boy with a small knife, causing minor injuries, police added.

The pair were the only passengers on the bus, said a school system spokeswoman.

The boy, who was not identified, refused treatment, according to authorities. The girl was charged as a juvenile with first-and second-degree assault, authorities said.

FOR THE RECORD - A headline in yesterday's Howard County edition of The Sun about a knife attack erroneously indicated the age of the victim. Police have not identified the victim or his age.
The Sun regrets the error.
