A North Carolina sixth-grader has been charged with five counts of assault for allegedly poking his classmates with a diabetes lancet.
Ayden police said that the boy is believed to have found the lancet on the floor of the Ayden Middle School gymnasium, according to The Associated Press.
He then allegedly used it to prick four other students and cut a fifth, WITN reported, drawing blood.
All the children who were attacked were taken to be checked out by their doctors.
A lancet is used to draw a blood sample. In the case of someone with diabetes, it's used to check glucose levels.
The sixth-grader was not identified and it could not be immediately determined whether he has a lawyer.
