Local Youth Arrested for Assault

A boy, 14, has been charged after Police say he attacked a fellow student and waved a knife at school staff.

During lunch recess at a local public school, the accused got upset when a student kicked a soccer ball and that's when he allegedly took off his belt and began swinging it, striking the victim twice.

Staff members took the teen to a classroom to wait for police, where he got agitated, and allegedly grabbed a knife out of a drawer and waved it at a staff member.

The teen was arrested and charged with two counts of assault with a weapon.

He was released from custody with a future court date.
