On Wednesday, December 8, 2010, at about 8:10 AM, school police officers responded to Olive Middle School (13701 E. Olive Street) regarding a student who had attempted
to stab another student with a knife. On arrival, school police officers learned that the victim, a 13-year-old male student from the school, had been confronted by another student, a 14-year-old male, in front of the school’s library before school started. The
suspect threatened and pushed the victim and challenged him to a fight. The suspect then pulled a locking-blade knife from his pocket, brandished it at the victim and, while struggling with the victim, made several stabbing motions at the victim’s midsection and
neck. The victim was able to pull back away from the suspect and avoided being stabbed with the knife. A school staff member observed the altercation and detained
both students. The knife was discovered in the suspect’s possession by school staff. The victim was not injured in the incident.
The suspect was arrested by the school police for attempted homicide and for possession of a knife on a school campus, both felony charges. The suspect was taken to the school police station for booking and was later transported to Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall, pending his court appearance.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have any additional information on this incident are asked to contact the school police department at (626) 856-4364.
