A 14-year-old has been charged following an incident at an elementary school in Sault Ste. Marie on Wednesday afternoon.

Sault police were called at 3 p.m. to respond to “a youth walking through the halls of an elementary school with scissors, approaching people in a threatening way and verbally threatening to harm them if they called police.”

“Officers responded, searched the building and confirmed the accused left school property prior to officers’ arrival,” police said in a news release Thursday.

“No one at the school sustained physical injuries.”

Police went to the teen’s house, where they were arrested and charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats and failing to comply with a release order.

The accused was held in custody pending a bail hearing.
