A 14-year-old boy has admitted to stabbing a supply teacher in a school classroom.
The teenager, who cannot be named, was arrested after 50-year-old Vincent Uzomah was stabbed in the stomach at Dixons Kings Academy in Bradford, West Yorkshire, on 11 June.
The student appeared at the city’s crown court on Monday where he denied attempted murder but admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
The Crown Prosecution Service accepted the plea and the judge, Jonathan Durham Hall QC, said the boy would be sentenced at a later date.
The incident occurred on 11 June where the teenager attacked Uzomah in front of a number of other students at the start of a science class. According to reports, the incident happened following a disagreement over a mobile phone.
Uzomah was stabbed once in the stomach with a kitchen knife that the student had brought from home.
After the incident, the teenager ran off and was arrested by police in Bradford city centre after a six-hour search.
