A 17-year-old Wolfson High School student was arrested in connection with the stabbing of another student Wednesday morning at the school.

During the fight, Jean-Pierre pulled out a pocket knife from his sweatshirt pocket and swung at Johnson, according to the report. He struck Johnson twice with the knife, causing two lacerations on Johnson's left tricep and forearm, according to police.

Jean-Pierre told police he brought the knife to school because he was terrified of Johnson.

Johnson was taken to UF Health Jacksonville but was expected to be OK. A photo of Johnson being transported to the hospital was posted on Instragram.

Jean-Pierre was arrested and booked into the Duval County jail.
