THE teen accused of stabbing an Ashwood College student remains in custody after a short hearing in the Children's Court last week.
A lawyer acting for the boy, who is alleged to have stabbed his 15-year-old victim at the school on February 1, did not seek bail.
The Children's Court heard that there were other legal matters and outstanding police matters that needed to be resolved before the case could continue. The boy did not take part in proceedings but appeared to farewell his mother as he was taken away.
The boy was on parole when he allegedly stabbed his victim on the inside of the right forearm with a knife similar to a box cutter. The victim suffered serious injuries and underwent surgery. The boy has pleaded guilty to charges of intentionally causing serious injury and possessing a controlled weapon.
He has previously been found guilty of trafficking and theft. In January last year he was charged with intentionally causing serious injury and assaulting a person by kicking.
Earlier, police told the Children's Court that the boy was on parole for the stabbing of a victim he believed deserved "retribution".
Police said the victim had received threatening messages on Facebook from friends of the accused. The hearing will resume this month.
