A 17-year-old student was rushed into surgery Monday after collapsing with stab wounds in front of a Palmdale high school, an official said.

The young man was stabbed about 11:20 a.m. in the arm and chest three blocks from the school but ran from his assailants and ended up outside R. Rex Parris High School, said Deputy Daryl Bonsall of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The two suspects ran the other way, Bonsall said. They  were described as young men in their 20s. One had short hair and was wearing a white T-shirt; the other was dressed in a black shirt and black hat. They remained at large.

The unidentified victim was not in school at the time of the attack, Bonsall added.
