Minnesota Elementary School Student Attacks Classmates with Knife

Woodson Branch School offers a nature-based education to youths

The event occurred in a school hallway and lasted approximately five minutes, the AP reported. The police report will be forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office. Police, ambulance and parents were called and responded.

Police confirmed via Twitter shortly after the incident that a man had been arrested.

The 8-year-old male suspect was taken into custody by Sauk Rapids police, according to the St. Cloud Times.

The alert was raised at around 1pm on Monday with the arrest taking place around two hours later.

Watkins declined to comment further about the 8-year-old due to student privacy rules. Sauk Rapids is about an hour outside Minneapolis.

Weapons in schools and school security have been ongoing issues in the U.S. "We're not sure exactly why he came to school with a knife".

This marks the fifth year of the partnership program which focuses on teaching students about the function and value of forested wetlands.

Watkins says a message was sent to parents to let them know about the incident. Beise says that when officers arrived, the boy was in a counselor's office while the three children, who were not seriously hurt, were being treated by the school nurse.

Parents of children attending Pleasantview all received an electronic notice of the incident Monday morning. Currently, we are working with school support staff to identify and provide support to staff and students that may have been impacted by this incident. Please know in situations like this the District's discipline policy is applied and aggressive students are not allowed in the building (s).
