By Ed Brock

A 14-year-old female Mt. Zion High School student was arrested after an incident in which another girl was cut with a razor blade Thursday afternoon on a school bus taking them home from school.

The two girls were getting off a school bus on Queen Ester Court around 4:15 p.m. when an altercation broke out between them, Clayton County Police Sgt. Brian Busch said.

"One of the females pulled out a razor and began cutting the other girl's arm," Busch said.

The victim, also 14 and also a student at Mt. Zion, suffered only minor injuries from the straight razor. The girls' names were not released due to their juvenile status.

Busch said the other girl was arrested a short time after the incident and charged with simple battery and aggravated assault.
