FORT MYERS, Fl. - A Dunbar Middle School student is under arrest and facing battery charges Wednesday night. 

WINK News is not naming the boy because he is underage.  But deputies say the 13-year old stabbed two other students with a pair of medical scissors.

One of the victims told deputies, the 13-year old was making fun of a girl on the bus.  When he intervened to stop the bullying, he was stabbed multiple times. 

Deputies say the 13-year old stabbed the second victim in a fight over candy.
