A fifth-grader charged with attempted murder Monday denied stabbing a classmate at their Boyle Heights elementary school.

The 11-year-old boy appeared in Eastlake Juvenile Court for arraignment on the attempted murder charge, along with a felony count of bringing or possessing a weapon on school grounds.

The judge ordered the boy, whose name was withheld because of his age, to remain in juvenile hall for now and to return to court on April 18.

The stabbing that left the 12-year-old victim hospitalized occurred Thursday at Bridge Street Elementary School.

Authorities have not commented on what precipitated the attack, in which the youngster was stabbed in the back with a pocket knife during recess. But one of the suspect’s relatives claimed he was being bullied by the older boy.

Update 3:35pm. A fifth-grader was charged with attempted murder today for allegedly stabbing another fifth-grade boy at a Boyle Heights elementary school.
The 11-year-old boy is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Eastlake Juvenile Court on the attempted murder charge, along with a felony count of bringing or possessing a weapon on school grounds, according to Greg Risling of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The stabbing occurred at Bridge Street Elementary in Boyle Heights Thursday, according to school police. The youngster was stabbed with a pocket knife.

“We made the arrest of the boy who stabbed the other boy and transported him to juvenile hall,” Sgt. George Sandoval of the Los Angeles Unified School District police said Friday morning. “The other boy remains in the hospital.”

The injured child was last reported in stable condition and Sandoval said there should be an update on his condition later in the day.

There’s no word on what precipitated the attack.

“Right now our detectives will be meeting with LAPD detectives to decide who will take the case to the District Attorney’s office,” Sandoval said. “Right now that still hasn’t been decided.”

The charge against the youngster who attacked his classmate remains up in the air today because of his age.

Superintendent King said in a statement Friday that the entire LAUSD is saddened by the tragic incident involving the two students.

“Student safety is paramount and remains our top priority.,” she said. “Our thoughts go out to the entire school community, especially the victim.”

King added that while the law enforcement investigation continues, the District is providing support for students and staff, including those who may have witnessed the incident.

Crisis counselors are at the school today, she said.

All schools have a Safe School Plan in place, and this plan will be included in the recovery process at Bridge Street Elementary School, added King.

A 25-year-old man suspected of stabbing his mother in their Boyle Heights home, leaving her hospitalized, was charged Monday with attempted murder.

Angel Hernandez was arrested Thursday in El Sereno by a detective who had interviewed the victim at the hospital. The lead detective on the case was on his way back to the station after the interview when he spotted Hernandez walking in the area and called for back-up, police said.

Hernandez, who is also facing a gun allegation, appeared in a downtown courtroom this afternoon but did not enter a plea. His arraignment was postponed to March 14, according to a court clerk.
Police said the stabbing occurred about 12:10 a.m. last Monday in the 3700 block of Lee Street, where the victim lived with her son.

“The mother was upset with her son for an incident that occurred earlier in the day,’” according to a statement issued by the Los Angeles Police Department. “Hernandez’s sister heard the mother pleading with her son that what he was doing wasn’t necessary and to just leave. Hernandez’s sister then heard what sounded like Hernandez physically assaulting their mother. Looking through a kitchen window, she saw her brother retrieve a large kitchen knife.”

When officers arrived at the home, they found the mother with multiple stab wounds to her neck, arms and legs, but her son had fled the scene, police said.

The woman was expected to survive her wounds.

Hernandez was being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
