Police have a boy in custody after two minors were stabbed multiple times on the playground of a Montgomery County elementary school on Monday afternoon, 2/22. It happened around 5:30 p.m. at Oak Park Elementary School on the 500 block of Squirrel Lane in Hatfield Township. The two minor victims were taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital. There is no word on their condition. The suspect had fled the scene but was found and taken into custody. The boy is a minor and his identity will not be released. The North Penn School District says that the incident happened after school and was not connected to any school activity.

Oak Park Elementary statement:
"This evening at approximately 5:30 pm, local police were called to Oak Park Elementary School campus due to a report of a stabbing. It was after school hours and not related to any school activity. There were no students in the building at the time, including Extended School Care who had all been picked up by then.

As of the time of this email, we are still learning details as it is an ongoing police investigation and we do not have more information to share except that the suspect is in custody.

Tragic events such as this are always upsetting. I want to assure you that the safety of the Oak Park community is our number one priority. Thank you to our local police and NPSD security who responded swiftly to this evening's event."
