A 13-year-old Thompson Middle School student was arrested at the campus without incident Friday afternoon for bringing a knife onto the school grounds.
According to Sgt. Robert Anderson of the Murrieta Police Department, the student “was in possession, which is against the law.”
Eyewitnesses say the student was a boy who was led off campus in handcuffs.
Anderson said the student will be prosecuted.
No one was hurt during the incident, the sergeant confirmed.
Due to age, the student’s identity will not be released.
