A mental competency hearing has been set for a former Pius X High School student accused of attacking another student last fall. Sarah Piccolo, now 17, is charged with 1st Degree Assault and Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony. 

Prosecutors say on October 7, Piccolo attacked the student in a school bathroom using a hunting knife and a claw hammer. The victim survived the attack. Piccolo fled to Kansas after the attack, but turned herself into police the next day. 

A request to transfer her case to juvenile court was denied. Piccolo's competency hearing is set for May 21.
