Cops are pressing charges against a teenage girl who threw a cup of bleach during a fight at Benjamin Cardozo High School in Bayside on Friday morning.

Five students, including the unidentified assailant, were hospitalized with minor injuries during the incident that occurred at 11:27 a.m. on Feb. 2 inside the school located at 57-00 223rd St.

According to police, two 16-year-old girls were in the middle of an argument when one of them threw what appeared to be pickle juice at the other girl. After being hit with the juice, authorities said, the other girl then grabbed bleach and threw it at her rival, splattering her and three other students in the process.

At this time, police do not know how the girl got hold of the substance.

Officers from the 111th Precinct and EMS units responded to the incident. The five students were brought to a local hospital for treatment.

Charges against the bleach-thrower, whose identity was not revealed, are pending, law enforcement sources said.
