Disgruntled Worker Stabs Ex-Colleague at Philadelphia Day School

A former employee at the Barrack Hebrew Academy stabbed a worker and threw bleach in his face at the suburban Philadelphia day school.

The incident in the kitchen at the nondenominational Jewish high school in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, occurred Monday just before 10 a.m., Philly.com reported, citing the Radnor Township Police.

The victim, who was stabbed in the head and neck, is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries and identified the alleged assailant, a 32-year-old who is in police custody after attempting to flee on a commuter train. The attack followed an argument between the victim and assailant.

Barrack’s head of school, Sharon Levin, said in a statement posted on the school website that the incident took place “while all of our students were in class. As a precautionary measure, our school immediately followed our lock down procedure, and at no time was any student or employee in any danger.”
