HALIFAX - Police have charged two young people following a stabbing at Auburn Drive High School last week that left a young man with a minor puncture wound.

The stabbing happened around 2:10 p.m. Thursday in the school parking lot after a dispute broke out between several people, one of whom goes to Auburn Drive.

The victim is an 18-year-old from Mineville who was stabbed with a knife.

In a release issued Tuesday, the RCMP say the victim was stabbed following a verbal exchange.

Three people were arrested Friday and two are now facing charges.

A 17-year-old male has been charged with robbery, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.  A 20-year-old woman is also charged with robbery.

Another male was released without charges and police say they are still looking for an 18-year-old woman in relation to the case.
