MONROE, La. (AP) — Monroe police say a 10-year-old girl was arrested at Cypress Point Elementary School for reportedly bringing a knife onto the property and making threats against a teacher.

Police Sgt. Mark Johnson says the female student had a butcher knife in a backpack and showed the weapon to other students. Johnson says the student reportedly made threats, stating the knife was to be used to injure a teacher who was not present during the incident.

The student was arrested Friday and placed in Green Oaks Detention Center, where she faces assault charges and possession of a weapon on a school campus.

The student's name was not released because of her age.
