Police Quiz Child over Baguette Attack
A pupil has been arrested for attacking a classmate with a baguette.
The 15-year-old attacker was questioned by police after arming himself with the French stick at a secondary school.
The unusual weapon was one of 80 seized by cops from schools in Sussex over the last two years.
A 13-year-old was warned by police officers after an assault with a pillow, a 14-year-old attacked another with an egg and a tomato and a 15-year-old was cautioned for common assault using a baguette.
One incident involved a 13-year-old armed with a piano stool and a xylophone.
Sussex Police, which released the figures following a freedom of information act request, said despite the numbers there was not an issue around weapons in the county's schools.
