APTOS — Law enforcement placed Aptos High School on lockdown Tuesday after a student was stabbed multiple times on campus.
By 4 p.m., the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office had detained two individuals related to the stabbing, but continued to investigate whether or not they were involved while the school remained on lockdown through at least 5 p.m.
The Sheriff’s Office was called to the high school at 2:20 p.m. for an assault that officials believe was “an isolated incident,” an agency spokesperson posted to Facebook.
Deputies continued to actively search for suspected assailants while an air ambulance flew to the high school to transport the patient to an out-of-county hospital.
Parents trying to reach the school during the lockdown were directed to wait at the Sheriff’s Office service center at Cabrillo College, next to the softball field, at 6500 Soquel Drive.
