Boy, 8, brings knife to school, attacks 3 students

The attacker "randomly" cut the other students, KARE said.

Sauk Rapids Police Chief Perry Beise says it was an eight-year-old boy who had brought a kitchen knife to school.

District officials say the suspect student, a second-grader, took out the knife shortly before classes began and struck a first-grader, a fourth-grader and a seventh-grader. The three victims - ages 8, 9 and13 - all received "superficial wounds", requiring stitches. Then he walked to the school office and put the knife down.

A number of armed police were despatched to the school in the town of Ishøj near Copenhagen after the student, who was previously expelled from the school, reportedly made the threats. All three male students were on their way to classes when they were slashed by their 8-year-old classmate.

Police say there is no indication the boy's parents will face any charges. The parents of the three injured students chose to transport their children either home or to receive further medical attention.
