8-year-old boy slashes stu­dents

The Citizens' Voice - - Nation & World -

An 8-year-old stu­dent took a kitchen knife to a cen­tral Min­ne­sota el­e­men­tary school and ran­domly at­tacked three chil­dren Mon­day, au­thor­i­ties said.

Po­lice Chief Perry Beise said the vic­tims — aged 8, 9 and 13 — suf­fered “su­per­fi­cial wounds” re­quir­ing stitches in the at­tack at Pleas­antview El­e­men­tary in Sauk Rapids. No one else was hurt.

Beise said he didn’t know why the boy did it.

“He ran­domly cut three stu­dents then walked into the of­fice and set the knife down,” he said.
