MARATHON, Fla. (AP) -- An 11-year-old boy has been turned over to
the Department of Juvenile Justice after authorities charged him with stabbing two nine-year-olds with a hypodermic needle and threatening a third one.

The suspect, who was not named by Monroe County Sheriff's officials because he is a minor, was standing in a cafeteria line in school last Thursday.

Monroe County Sheriff's deputies said the suspect stabbed two
kids in the buttocks with a hypodermic needle.

He then chased a third boy, who ran away and hid.

The two victims told a teacher, who found the needle hidden in the suspect's book.

The boy was charged Wednesday with two counts of battery and one
count of assault.

He was booked at the Marathon Detention Center.
