Minnesota School Knife Attack by Boy, 8, Injures 3 Others

8-year-old boy attacks classmates with knife at elementary school in Minnesota

"It was wonderful to see so many of our former students interacting with the young ones who are just becoming aware of their capabilities and seeing a bright future for themselves", says The Foundation School for Autism Campus Director Rheatha Miller.

School Superintendent Bruce Watkins says the boy lashed out at the other students until an adult intervened.

"The incident took place in the hallway as students were heading to class". He says the boy cooperated with investigators. The police report will be forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office.

The child was taken into custody but released later that day.


One of the injured children is a seventh-grader who was waiting to catch a transfer bus. "We're not sure exactly why he came to school with a knife", Chief Perry Beise said.

In a bid to overcome the loss in academics of students due to "untoward circumstances", Director School Education Kashmir has issued fresh instructions to all the Heads of the Institutions to arrange extra classes for the students and ensure the timely completion of syllabus.

Sauk Rapids is about 70 miles (113 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis. Pleasantview has 720 students in kindergarten through fifth grade, according to the school district's website. The attacker is 8 years old.

One of the victims told the authorities that their classmate simply puts down the backpack he was carrying, leaned over, unzipped one of the compartments from where he pulled a kitchen knife. School nurses administered first aid until paramedics arrived. Sauk Rapids police declared that they are not going to press charges, the child needing counseling and guidance rather than jail.
