A 14-year-old girl has been arrested after police said she threw bleach on girls in the school gym at Westville High School in Stamford on Monday morning.

 

Two 14-year-old freshmen were fighting in the gymnasium area at 7:25 a.m. and one girl threw bleach at the other, police said.

 

Police said it was a premeditated attack and the girl brought the bleach from home.  

 

Four other girls who were watching the fracas were sprayed with bleach, according to police.

 

The school resource officers and school security responded and detained the two involved in the fight.

 

Three juveniles were transported to area hospitals to be treated after coming into contact with the bleach. One sustained an eye injury when bleach was thrown in her face, police said.

 

All injuries appear to be superficial and all were released from the hospital.

 

The 14-year-old accused of throwing the bleach was charged her with assault in the first degree, criminal attempt at assault in the first degree, five counts of reckless endangerment in the first degree and five counts of risk of injury to a minor and transported to the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.

 

School officials will take their own disciplinary actions.
