Two Teachers And A Student Hurt In School Stabbing

Fredericton police shedding more light on a stabbing incident at Eastern College on Prospect street this morning.

Police arrived just before 830 to find two teachers and one student had been hurt by a machete-style knife and one man was arrested.

Three victims were sent to hospital and media reports have one teacher requiring surgery.

Fredericton police chief Leanne Fitch says if a student had not intervened and subdued the suspect a bad situation would have been a lot worse.

Fitch adds they believe its an isolated incident and they do not believe there is any additional threat to the community.
