A 14-year-old middle school boy has been arrested after he attacked a classmate with a knife over a playground joke.
The girl, 14, remains unidentified, was attacked at Aspen Creek K-8 School in Broomfield, Colorado. The boy attacked the girl with a serrated kitchen knife around 11:30 a.m., after he was made fun of by classmates at recess. He has since been arrested for questioning.
Police don’t believe the attack was tied to any wider criminal activity. However, the school failed to detect the weapon through their routine searches.
Police are currently interviewing classmates who may have seen the attack occur in the playground. Currently, not much is known beyond the initial allegations.
