PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Prescott police said a 14-year-old boy intentionally burned two classmates with hot glue and a glue gun Tuesday morning.

The Prescott Mile High Middle School students were working on a project in technology class when the suspect, whose name was not released, burned them.

Police said a 13-year-old boy was burned on the arm and hand with a glue gun and hot glue. A 12-year-old boy was burned when the suspect took a small piece of wood with hot glue on it and pressed it against his neck. 

The suspect, who was already on probation in Yavapai County for previous crimes, admitted he was not mad or upset with the victims, according to Prescott police. He said he was "just messing around."

Both victims' injuries were red and blistered and they were treated at the school. At this time, it is unknown if additional medical treatment will be required. 

The suspect was transported to the Yavapai Juvenile Detection Center and booked on two counts of aggravated assault.
