RCMP were on scene at Auburn High School May 15 after a student was stabbed. 


Police are looking for a 17-year-old suspect after a stabbing at Auburn Drive High School that left another young man with a minor puncture wound.

Halifax Regional School Board spokesperson Doug Hadley said it happened around 2:10 p.m. May 15 in the school parking lot after a dispute between two teens, one of whom is currently attending Auburn.

“There was some type of confrontation and the student was stabbed in the leg with a sharp object,” he said.

According to a release from Halifax RCMP, the victim is an 18-year-old from Mineville who was stabbed with a knife.

Hadley said the student made his way back into the school for help.

“The school called paramedics, he was looked at and required no further medical attention,” Hadley said, adding police arrived shortly after to interview the victim.

The two teens are known to one another, but the suspect had left by the time police arrived at the school.

Hadley said there was no impact on the school or other students.
