Principal was cut on the wrist with what they believe to be a knife
Royal Palm Beach, FL — A woman assistant principal at Royal Palm Beach High School suffered a cut on the wrist Thursday morning while trying to break up a fight off campus.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded to the scene, located at Wildcat Way and Bob White Road, at about 7:10 a.m., according Cpt. Albert Borroto.
The assistant principal was patrolling outside on a golf cart when she saw a group of students fighting. The woman was transported to Wellington for treatment with minor injuries. Deputies say it appears the assistant principal was cut on the wrist with what they believe to be a knife that one of the students was holding.
Deputies do not believe it was intentional. "It was cut pretty good. I heard her crying and heard her say it was probably worse than her labor so she had to be cut pretty good," said Mickey Giordano who lives nearby.
Deputies say they are still looking for the knife and the person who was holding it. They detained and questioned several teenagers at a park across the street.
