Second-Grader Attacks Students With Kitchen Knife

On Monday, the Sauk Rapids police were summoned to the Pleasantview Elementary School after an 8-year-old boy attacked three of his classmates with a kitchen knife. A second-grade male student took out a knife after he put his backpack away and cut three others, according to the Star Tribune.

By the time officers arrived, Beise said, the boy was in an office with a counsellor and the three injured students were being treated by the school nurse.

The suspect was taken into custody by Sauk Rapids police, interviewed and has since been released to his parents.

An ambulance was called but was not needed. There are approximately 790 students enrolled at the elementary.

Superintendent Bruce Watkins wouldn't say how old the child was that brought the knife, only that he is a student at Pleasantview. Mental health professionals are available on site at Pleasantview Elementary.
