Superintendent Bruce Watkins wouldn't say how old the child was that brought the knife, only that he is a student at Pleasantview. Officials say the victims suffered minor injuries. He was interviewed and released to his parents. I don't think he had an intended target when he came to school with a knife. Thanks to support from Chevron Oronite and the Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation, 113 students from Belle Chasse Primary and Phoenix Elementary were able to participate during the 2017-2018 school year. Police, ambulance and parents were called and responded. The incident resulted in three students being injured and the aggressor was contained in the office. The police report will be forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office.

Police in Sauk Rapids haven't returned a phone message seeking comment. The parents of the three injured students chose to transport their children either home or to receive further medical attention.

Close to 100 parents and students who have walked the halls of The Foundation School for Autism gathered for the school's first ever homecoming celebration. He said he didn't know if the boy had been bullied, or if he had mental health issues.
