A student at West High School in Torrance has been arrested after going on an alleged frenzy of violence.

High school senior Jessie Morehead, 18, is behind bars, charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Investigators said Morehead was ordered to sit down in a psychology class. Instead, they said he set paper towels on fire, threw them at the teacher, and then punched the teacher.

Investigators said he then attacked and stabbed a girl who had rejected his love letters. Fortunately, her injuries are minor.
