COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A correctional officer with the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice is accused of stabbing a student with a fork.

WLTX-TV reports that 31-year-old Naja Woods is charged with third-degree assault and battery.

Officials say Woods stabbed a female student in the arm, shoulder, chest, and face with a metal fork while at DJJ's Columbia campus on Dec. 17.

The girl was treated at an onsite infirmary for scratches and puncture wounds.

Court records show Woods posted bond on the charge in January, and no attorney was listed for her. DJJ officials said they were in the process of firing Woods.
