BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) -

Authorities say a 13-year-old girl stabbed a boy in the neck with a pencil while they were on a school bus in southern Michigan.

Battle Creek police responded Thursday afternoon to the stabbing, which took place after crude comments were being made toward the girl on the Battle Creek Public Schools bus. Police say the 12-year-old boy was treated for what were described as minor injuries.

Another boy was struck with the pencil, but police say it didn't penetrate his clothing.

The girl was taken into custody by police. Police say she'll face a felonious assault charge in juvenile court. The case is under investigation.
