Delta police are investigating a stabbing as a result of a conflict between two students at Burnsview Secondary School Tuesday.

Police say the accused youth is not known to them.

"This appears to be a conflict between two students that unfortunately escalated to violence," said Delta Police spokesperson Cris Leykauf, adding that "police are taking this incident extremely seriously."

Police say they are protecting the identities of the victim and the suspect because they are both under 18 years of age.

The accused youth was arrested Tuesday and has since been released into the family's custody on the condition they not return to Burnsview Secondary, while the victim who was injured in the altercation has now been released from hospital.

Police say they have recovered the knife that was believed to have been used.

They say the youth is not known to them.
