Police Respond To Report Of Student With Knife In Grand Forks

Posted: Updated:
This afternoon around 1:45, officers from the Grand Forks Police Department were dispatched to Lake Agassiz School reference the report of a student with a knife. The caller indicated that the student was separated from other students and had been secured in a room by staff members.

Initial responding officers (UNDPD) initially found the 8 year old student to be in a high emotional state. During their interaction with the student, UNDPD officers recovered a small folding knife (closed) from the students’ pocket. Though the 8 year old student was not injured, he was very emotional and Altru Ambulance was called to transport the student to be evaluated.

It does not appear that any other students were threatened or in danger, nor was the school placed in “lockdown” status during the incident. The incident remains under investigation to ascertain if any staff members were threatened during the incident.

The Grand Forks Police Department wishes to thank the University of North Dakota Police Department, as well as Altru Ambulance for their assistance in this matter.

The Grand Forks police Department would also like to remind parents:

  • Notify police immediately if their children tell them of a student with a weapon (any type).
  • Be aware of the school district policy on what is, or is not considered a weapon.
