Longmont police say a high school student has been stabbed in the back several times with scissors but suffered only superficial injuries.

The 14-year-old girl was attacked Thursday morning in a hallway between classes at Silver Creek High School. She was treated at Longmont United Hospital.

Police Commander Craig Earhart says she's expected to make a full recovery.

Earhart says a 14-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault. He says the boy is also a Silver Creek student but there's no indication he knew the victim.

Earhart says the attack appears to be random.

No names have been released.
