westport-police-station - stockimageA Westport youth faces several charges after police say the student threatened another with a knife at Westport High School.

The incident took place during the lunch hour in the school (precise location wasn’t specified) on Monday, Nov 4. Faculty members alerted the school resource officer (police officer) that a student had shown a knife while making the threat but had not used it.

The resource officer found the student and seized the knife which was described as a spring-loaded folding knife, classified as a dangerous weapon.

Three days later, at 9:08 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 7, police arrested the youth at an off-campus location. Charges included carrying a dangerous weapon on school grounds, and assault (threats) with a dangerous weapon.
