School: Report of playground needle stab ‘unsubstantiated’

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman says a report of a stabbing on a school playground has been unsubstantiated after an investigation.

Lt. Jerry Brewer with the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call this morning about a child stabbed with a needle at College Park Elementary earlier this week. Brewer said no needle has been found, so they’re unable to determine what kind of needle it was. Brewer said the child is being monitored.

New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman Valita Quattlebaum said, “The school staff, along with the SRO, investigated and the claim is unsubstantiated.”
