Boy, 14, charged with attempted murder after Rosewood school stabbing

A 14-year-old boy has been charged with attempted murder after a stabbing incident that forced the lockdown of a schoolyard west of Brisbane earlier this month.

Police will allege the boy seriously assaulted two others at the Rosewood school about 11.30am on February 6 before fleeing on foot.

He was arrested a short time later on a nearby street. The school, Rosewood State High, was placed in lockdown after the incident.

A 12-year-old boy was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening abdominal wounds. A 13-year-old sustained minor injuries to his hand.

Police have now charged the 14-year-old with two counts of attempted murder and one count of possessing a knife in a school.

He will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.
