METHUEN (CBS) — Two men are in custody for allegedly stabbing a Methuen High School student.
Police say three men approached an 18-year-old senior and stabbed him in the buttocks after school, Tuesday.
The suspects then fled into a wooded area near the school. Police took Levi Jose Cruzetta, 19, into custody a short time later. Cruzetta is a former student at Methuen High School. He’s being held on $50,000 bail.
A second suspect, Justin Suriel, 18, later turned himself into police. A third suspect is still at-large.
During the incident, police did not put any of the schools under lockdown because they were aware the attack was directed at the victim and the suspects fled away from the school.
Police say the victim was taken to Holy Family Hospital with a non-life threatening injury.
