Delaware police say they are investigating after a report of students using a Lancet to prick others at a Delaware school.

According to police reports, the principal of Delaware Christian School contacted the police on Friday to report the assault. Police said two students are accused of using a Lancet, a pricking needle commonly used to obtain drops of blood for testing, to prick six students.

The principal of Delaware Christian School, Gordon McDonald, told 10TV the two students accused in the assault were disciplined in accordance with school policy. McDonald said he notified the parents of the students involved and also contacted police because of the potential dangers of blood transfer.

Gordon told 10TV he does not believe the students had any malicious intent. No one has been charged.
