At least eight students at Wilson Middle School reported finding staples in their lunch Thursday, Wyandotte police confirmed Friday.
In an email to parents, Jason Krajewski, the school principal, said that two students had bit into a staple and six others reported having one in their salad during eighth-grade lunch period.
“Through our investigation, a number of students came forward with information that was helpful in catching the offender,” Krajewski said in the email.
Wyandotte Police were notified and the school reportedly suspended the minor for 10 days, a Wilson parent confirmed.
“It’s not much different than bringing a gun to school. You’re really trying to hurt the kids when you do something like this,” the parent, who asked to remain anonymous, said.
Several students allegedly suffered minor injuries, and a number of others were afraid to eat their lunches because of the incident, the parent said. “As far as I know, there have been no criminal charges.”
Wyandotte Police Detective Jerome Yoscovits said Friday that the culprit, a 13-year-old sixth-grader, has been enrolled in the city's youth assistance program for juvenile defenders.
Police declined to comment further because the case is under investigation.
No serious injuries were reported.
Did Wilson make the right decision, what are your thoughts?
