LINDEN, N.J.  — Authorities say a fight at a northern New Jersey school ended with one student stabbing another, but the wounded youth was not seriously injured.

The fight involving two 13-year-old boys at the Joseph E. Soehl middle school in Linden started in a hallway around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. A police officer assigned to the school arrested the alleged assailant moments after the stabbing occurred, but it’s not clear what charges that youth will face.

The student who was stabbed was treated for a minor puncture wound to the hand.

Authorities have not said what sparked the brawl.
