A 15-year-old at Brooklyn’s Erasmus Hall High School was in critical condition Tuesday after a fellow student stabbed him repeatedly in the head with a pair of scissors.
Students said it started with a penny ante basketball beef: Chevoy Nelson, 16, was mad because victim Alfredo Allen stole the ball from him during a lunchtime pickup game at the Prospect Park South school.
Nelson – described by a school source as a special ed student who is emotionally disturbed – was arrested for assault with a weapon, the Education Department confirmed.
The two teens were playing basketball in the third floor gym during lunch when Allen took the ball and wouldn’t give it to the increasingly angry Nelson.
The furious teen punched Allen in the face then ran out to look for a weapon, witnesses said.
“He goes running around, asking everyone for a weapon,” said a police source. “He goes into a classroom and asks a teacher for acid. She obviously says no, but then she get distracted he grabs a pair of scissors and runs back to the gym. He chases (Allen) around, stabbing him.”
Wayne Morgan, an 18-year-old senior, said, “He stabbed the guy in the head like seven times. The teacher was there, but it’s not like he let it happen – the whole thing happened in like 5 seconds.”
