BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The teenager accused of stabbing a 13-year-old girl at an IU music camp is out of jail.

Dongwook “Mikey” Ko was released from jail and placed on house arrest after his family posted bond and surrendered his passport, reports the Indiana Daily Student.

Ko, 17, is charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery, kidnapping, kidnapping armed with a deadly weapon, and strangulation.

He is accused of attacking a 13-year-old girl attending a strings academy at IU’s Jacobs School of Music.

Bloomington police say Ko lured the girl out of a practice room on July 12 and stabbed her several times with a pocket knife. 

An employee heard the girl’s screams and stopped the attack. The girl survived but needed stitches.

Ko is a citizen of South Korea but has lived in the United States for several years. His mother is in the country on a student visa.
