A student was stabbed three times by another student at a school in Boston's West Roxbury neighborhood on Wednesday morning.

The stabbing occurred at West Roxbury Academy at 1205 VFW Parkway, according to Boston Police.

Police said a call came in around 8:30 a.m. for a report of a student who had stabbed another student. The 17-year-old victim, a Roxbury resident, was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 15-year-old suspect was arrested for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Bail was set at $50,000 for the teen, identified only as a Dorchester resident by the Suffolk district attorney, and was ordered to stay away from the victim, witnesses and school and to remain under house arrest.

School officials said the dispute occurred between classes, and involved two students. They said it is considered "an isolated incident."

The next court date for the student accused of stabbing the classmate is April 22.

No names were released by officials.
