Teenager charged with two counts of attempted murder after school attacks

Devon and Cornwall Police said a 16-year-old boy will appear at Exeter Magistrates’ Court on Monday morning over “violent assaults” on two boys and a man at a private school in Tiverton on Friday.

The teenager is charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of GBH with intent.

The boys, who are both students at Blundell’s School, Tiverton, remain in hospital with one in critical condition and the other described as being in a serious but stable condition.

The man, a staff member at the school, was injured but discharged from hospital on Friday, the force said.

Commander Superintendent Toby Davies said: “Our thoughts remain with the injured boys and their families in what must be a harrowing time for them. My officers are continuing to support them and the wider school community.

“We continue to fully investigate this incident and a scene guard remains in place at the school and is expected to remain there for the rest of the day.”
