The other boy, a senior at the high school, was arrested for assault, according to the inspector.
"He was arrested at the scene, and brought to the First Precinct," Gigante said. "He was charged and released on station house bail. He has a court appearance next month."
Gigante had no other details about the boy who was arrested at presstime.
However, 11th-grader Meyer told News 12 Long Island he was "viciously attacked" by "a senior in one of his classes who got mad at him over something on Facebook."
