16-Year-Old Girl Stabbed To Death In New Rochelle

16-Year-Old Girl Stabbed To Death In New Rochelle

Police tell The Journal News Valeree Schwab was with another teenage boy when the two got into a fight with a group of at least six teenagers inside the coffee shop across from Iona College Wednesday afternoon.

Schwab was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where she later died. The school district released the following statement: "The City School District of New Rochelle is saddened by the incident on North Avenue today in which a New Rochelle High School student was stabbed".

Police say a suspect has been identified but there have been no arrests.

At 1 p.m. Thursday, she surrendered to authorities and booked for second-degree murder, police said. She fled the Dunkin Donuts immediately after the 12:21 p.m. stabbing, leaving the dying student behind and remaking her way into a school building.

UPDATE - suspect in New Rochelle student homicide has surrendered to police.

Also not clear is how Brown came to be carrying a steak knife along with her victim, being in possession of pepper spray.

"Our hearts go out to all who have been touched by this tragic occurrence", the school stated on its website.

When asked why a girl from Yonkers attended a school in New Rochelle, school officials on Thursday said there are many legal reasons behind such a decision, and they could not divulge which were applicable in Brown's case. "This is a devastating loss for our school community, and our deepest condolences go out to Valaree's family and friends", the statement continued. Grief counselors and extra security were on hand Thursday. Anyone with information is urged to contact the New Rochelle Police Department's General Investigations Unit at 914-654-2270.
