Police were called to the incident, which happened in the Fartown area of ​​Huddersfield, at 2.54pm.

A 46-year-old father who has a son in school said Yorkshire live: “It was a scary moment when I found out there was a problem and that my 14-year-old son’s phone was answered by a teacher. I understand that he may have witnessed something that happened.

“The staff asked me to come get him. I heard it all come out of nowhere. They grabbed this student, pinned him to the ground and stabbed him multiple times.”

Yorkshire Air Ambulance blocked roads around the incident and parents said they were very worried.

Another father, whose daughter attends the school, said something needed to be done about the rise in crime in the area, adding: “My daughter had just started there and was on the bus home. A boy with a black hat and a snood jumped on a student, stabbed him and ran away.

“She saw the fight, but she didn’t see the knife or the blood. The bus had just stopped when it happened, so it blocked some of the incident – it seems to be OK, but I think it’s still being processed. In this new school it’s only her third week.”

He added that the area is starting to “feel like a crime drama.”

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: ‘This afternoon at 2.54pm police received a report from a third party that a teenager had been seriously injured in an assault in Woodhouse Hill, Huddersfield.
