14 Year Old UK Student Arrested after Stabbing Nigerian-British Teacher ‘Vincent Uzomah’ in Stomach over Mobile Phone Row!
Guardian UK reports that a 14-year-old Dixons Kings academy schoolboy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after stabbing 50-year-old Nigerian-British Teacher “Vincent Uzomah” during a science lesson in an attack witnessed by other pupils.
One of the students told the BBC he believed the incident had happened in a row over a mobile phone. The unnamed male student said the boy had refused to hand over his mobile phone to the teacher who was polite and “never shouted.”
Police however confirmed that the victim was taken to a hospital and he is currently in a stable condition, as he did not suffer internal bleeding.
The boy was reported to have fled after the scene of the attack but was arrested in Bradford city center on Thursday afternoon following a police appeal for information about his whereabouts.
“We have just arrested a 14-year-old male in connection with this offence and he is currently in custody on suspicion of attempted murder,” Det Supt Simon Atkinson of West Yorkshire police told reporters outside the school.
