Student charged at tech center - 04/16

KEYSER, W.Va. — Keyser Police responded to the Mineral County Technical Center on Monday at 10:46 a.m. for an incident in which a 19-year-old student was allegedly thrown into a wall by a 17-year-old student. The students, who are both mentally challenged, “were horsing around,” according to Karen Shoemaker, chief of police.

The victim was transported to Potomac Valley Hospital with a laceration to the face and minor injuries. Juvenile petition charges were filed against the suspect, which is similar to an arrest warrant for an adult, and the case will go through the court system, according to Shoemaker.
