Woman Stabbed at Dallas Lutheran School Graduation

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for non life-threatening injuries

Police said a 17-year-old male stabbed a 19-year-old woman during a high school graduation in Dallas Saturday.

Dallas police said the teen stabbed Camille Smith of Plano with a pocket knife about 30 minutes into the graduation at Dallas Lutheran School in the 8900 block of Stults Road at about 10:30 a.m.

Smith was a guest of a graduate. She was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries that police said were not life threatening.

In a news release, Dallas Lutheran School executive director Dave Bangert the attacker was "quickly subdued."

"The school was immediately locked down and after an appropriate time the ceremony resumed after prayer for both the victim and the attacker," Bangert stated.

Police said the teen was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. It's not known what provoked the attack.

The school said the rest of the ceremony went on without incident.
