Stabbed teacher still in hospital

11:06 am on 4 March 2009

A teacher who was stabbed in the back in a classroom at Avondale College, is still in hospital.

David Warren, 49, was due to be released from hospital on Tuesday night.

However, the Auckland District Health Board says he remains a patient due to a separate medical problem, which cannot be disclosed for privacy reasons.

Mr Warren has thanked people for the support he has received since the attack.

A Korean student, 17, is due to appear in the Auckland District Court on Wednesday, charged over the stabbing.
