Stabbing at Houston pre-grad

On Thursday June 8 around 1 a.m. at Sunset Lake, two graduating students of Houston Secondary School were stabbed during pre-grad celebrations. A witness that wants to remain anonymous said, “One got stabbed and the other got his hand cut. The attacker was badly beaten up.”

According to the witness there is a lot of speculation as to how the incident started.

The witness is unsure of the exact details but said from what the witness heard a verbal fight was instigated by the one graduating student, which triggered a fist fight with the alleged knife attacker, who became unconscious during the fight and then once regained consciousness attacked one graduating student with a knife.

According to the witness the second graduating student stepped in and that is how his hand got cut.

“The ambulance, fire department, and cops arrived shortly after,” said the witness.

According to the witness others stepped in to stop the fight, and the alleged knife attacker was then beaten up by a group of people.

Unconfirmed report say the alleged attacker was not a graduating student and is in critical condition at the Prince George hospital.

According to the witness the two graduating students are ok, “Some stitches, but the alleged attacker still remains at the Prince George hospital in critical condition.”

When Houston Today contacted the fire chief of the Houston Volunteer Fire Department to request more information, Jim Daigneault said, “I do not have any information.”

Houston RCMP detachment was also contacted but was not available for comment at press time.
