A teenager accused of stabbing another student multiple times at a Chester County school surrendered to police on Tuesday, officials said.

The 16-year-old Coatesville resident was involved in a fight with the other student inside a bathroom at Coatesville Area Senior High School in Caln Township, according to investigators.

During the fight, Cannon allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the other student multiple times. Cannon then fled the scene. Students at the school were dismissed from classes early after the stabbing.

The student was taken to Paoli Hospital where he is listed in stable condition.

Police said the 16-year-old suspect later surrendered to police without incident. He was arraigned and remanded to the Chester County Juvenile Detention Center in lieu of $750,000 cash bail.
