STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — A 14-year-old Stamford girl faces assault and other charges after allegedly attacking a fellow student with bleach in what police are calling a premeditated incident.
Stamford Police Lt. Diedrich Hohn said the girl planned the attack before carrying it out.
“We learned that she brought a bottle of bleach in from home knowing that she was going to fight another girl,” Hohn told WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman.
What the girls fought about remains unclear, police said.
The incident happened near the Westhill High School gym around 7:30 Monday morning.
“And during the course of the fight she pulled out the bleach and doused her with the bleach,” Hohn said.
The girl splashed bleach on four of the target’s friends who were watching the fight, according to police.
“One of the girls was transported to Stamford Hospital for an eye injury, that bleach went into her eye,” Hohn told Silverman.
In all, three girls, including the suspect, were taken to the hospital, but were released later in the day.
The attacker was taken into police custody.
“All I can say is she was not remorseful at all,” said Hohn. “And very removed from the situation.”
The attacker’s name was not released because she is a minor.
The girl has been charged with several counts, including assault and reckless endangerment.
Police continue to investigate the fight and the attack.
