An Anaheim high school student was stabbed with a screwdriver Friday while another was assaulted with some type of club-style weapon, police said.

The students were on lunch break at Magnolia High School when two juveniles who are not students at the school made their way onto campus and assaulted them, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez.

"They somehow blended in with the students, and one of the suspects immediately hit one student on the back of the head with an object like a club or a broomstick," Martinez said. "Another suspect with a screwdriver stabbed another student."

The victims were taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange with non-life-threatening injuries. Police officers found one suspect on campus. The other was found a short time later a few blocks from the school.

One suspect was identified only as a 16-year-old male. Details about the other suspect were not available. The school was locked down briefly while police gathered evidence.
