BAYSIDE, Queens — A 14-year-old student was slashed in the face at Benjamin N. Cardozo High School in Bayside Tuesday morning, according to a school safety source.

The victim, who is the son of a school safety agent, was standing near the staircase when he was approached by another student and slashed on the forehead, the source said.

The student was transported to a hospital.

The school was placed on lock down as authorities searched for the suspect.

A suspect in the case turned himself in several hours later at the NYPD’s 111 precinct.

It was not immediately known if the students knew each other or if this was a random assault.

The Department of Education said in a statement “the safety of students and staff is our top priority, and NYPD and EMS immediately responded to a serious incident at Cardozo High School this morning where a student was transported to the hospital in stable condition. We are working with NYPD as they conduct an investigation, and are taking additional safety measures at the school.“
