MARION, Ark. (AP) — Authorities in northeast Arkansas say a 14-year-old student was arrested after he allegedly brought knives to Marion Junior High School.
Marion Police Assistant Chief Gerald Martin said Friday that the teen was apprehended Thursday after a school resource officer found out the student was in the cafeteria armed with a knife.
Martin says no one was hurt.
Authorities say the teen was wearing a black trench coat, had three kitchen knives and a piece of paper with drawings on it.
Martin says the teen was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a prohibited weapon on school property.
The teen's name hasn't been released because of his age. Martin says he's scheduled to have a court hearing on Monday in Crittenden County Juvenile Court.
