FULL TITLE: Girl, 16, on the run after vicious hammer and knife attack on another female student at their Catholic high school

Authorities in Nebraska are searching tonight for a 16-year-old student who allegedly slashed another girl in the face with a knife and beat her across the head with a hammer today.

Lincoln police said that Pius X student Sarah Piccolo attacked 17-year-old Ellen Kopetzky in the bathroom of the Catholic high school just before 9.45 a.m. (CDT).

The school immediately went into lock-down following the shocking event and Piccolo is said to have fled the scene in a grey 1992 Buick Park Avenue with Nebraska plate number TJM 557.

Lincoln Police Captain David Beggs confirmed that a large survival knife was recovered from the bathroom along with a claw hammer and so far, investigators have not speculated on a motive.

'It would be to her benefit to contact us,' Beggs said.

Piccolo is described as 5-foot 5-inches, 105 pounds, with brown hair and her family said that they were terrified for her.

'I’m just scared to death,' Sarah’s father, John Piccolo, said to the Journal Star. 'She’s out driving. She’s scared. She’s running.

'We don’t know where she’s at.'

The family of Ellen Kopetzky confirmed that she had undergone surgery at Bryan West Campus to treat multiple injuries and asked for well-wishers to offer prayers.

She might be hiding behind the dangling preposition.

It’s not like they have enough info to find out who this person is

Sarah Piccolo is said to have fled the scene in a grey 1992 Buick Park Avenue with Nebraska plate number TJM 557. Piccolo is described as 5-foot 5-inches, 105 pounds, with brown hair and her family said that they were terrified for her.

I wonder.... oh probably the same person

Question: If the school "immediately went into lock-down following the shocking event", how is it that the perpetrator "fled the scene in a 1992 Buick Park Avenue with Nebraska plate number TJM 557"?

Then again, maybe I'm not grasping the Newspeak definitions words such as "immediately", "follow" and "lock-down"

I have told my kids to violate every lock down instituted and rendezvous at our assign point and I will pick them up. They are safer with me. Someone drops a lunch try and school’s go into lock down.

“a large survival knife was recovered from the bathroom along with a claw hammer”

They sure have a lot more accessories in the girl’s bathrooms than they do in the boy’s.

Proving once again that humor can be found in even the most tragic of events, as long as police officials are willing to quote from the "Dumb Things to Say When Addressing At-Large Criminals" Handbook.

Homeschoolers mostly miss out on this sort of socialization. Their loss, I suppose.

You think that's bad? My cousins used to say things like "Where at is it?"

But seriously... why point out the bad grammar on such a serious matter? I pray for the victim and the families of both. I hope they find this girl.

"She might be hiding behind the dangling preposition."

Indeed. Very poor construction.

Everyone knows it should be "We don't know where she be at"

Because the quasi-illiteracy rampant in the media - and on FR - drives some of us quasi-crazy.

If she leaves the city you would think she would be easy to find in the wide open spaces.

I cannot type and I am too old to give a rip now.

I saw it when i hit send but waited for the grammar police to flag it. It is better to ask forgiveness than get permission.

I’d be worried that they would bring her back. Their darling little daughter sounds psychotic-bats**t crazy. If it were MY daughter she attacked, I would be out looking for her and it wouldn’t be good when I found her. Seriously-we need asylums for all these mentally deranged people. Let’s see what ‘problems’ she’s had, ‘meds’, etc. I’m sick of parents and society who protect dangerous,insane kids who need a bottle full of drugs to help them be ‘semi-normal’. They protect them- and innocent people get attacked by them.

Until they change the rules on involuntary committments to be longer than 72 hours you're gonna see this stuff. The way the law is now you cannot involuntarily hold someone for more than 72 hours unless they present a clear and present danger to themselves and others. Of course if the parents are in denial about their childs mental illness then they are absolutely at blame if the kid goes and does something stupid or violent. I have no problem with holding the parents responsible if they clearly knew what their child was capable of.

But dad’s not horrified that his daughter would do such a thing?

My guess is she was retaliating at a bully. She had enough.

From the size and weight, that would be my guess too. If she ever gets back into school which is doubtful, I can pretty much guarantee none of the mean girls will ever mess with her again.

Perp in custody. The story is that she has no relationship with the victim.
