John Ehret student arrested for allegedly stabbing classmate

Updated:

Marrero, La. - Jefferson Parish deputies arrested a 17-year-old high school student for stabbing a 15-year-old classmate with a pair of scissors Monday morning.

Sheriff Newell Normand says the incident happened in a fight between two girls outside the cafeteria at John Ehret High School.

Investigators say 17-year-old Ayesha Majeer pulled scissors from her backpack and stabbed the unnamed 15-year-old student several times.

The wounded girl is in stable condition at University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Majeer is booked with aggravated battery and illegal carrying of a concealed weapon.

Investigators say the altercation rose out of an ongoing problem between Majeer and the victim over a friend.
