Things got a little dicey.
A 15-year-old middle schooler from the Seattle area has been admitted to a juvenile detention center over an alleged slashing involving a box cutter and a pair of Jordans.
The altercation happened on Tuesday, when the victim said he was going to “get” the alleged slasher’s Air Jordans and Gucci belt. The accused teen told police that he was frightened by the victim’s “large and muscular” frame, so he armed himself with a box cutter for self defence, in case an altercation arose.
And boy did it.
According to some reports, the victim approached the student and grabbed his belt after being provoked to take it. That’s when the suspect allegedly swung the box cutter in a reckless attempt to protect his property.
Whilst the slasher may have felt threatened on other days, it seems like he taunted his bully into the attack — not the best way to go about things, but it’s always good to see people standing up for themselves in high school, because fuck bullying.
