FARMINGTON — Police say a second-grader in Maine has been charged with terrorizing for allegedly brandishing a jackknife while threatening a younger boy.

RSU 9 Superintendent Tom Ward told the Sun Journal that the incident happened Tuesday morning on a bus on the way to the Mallett School in Farmington.

He says the 8-year-old boy was sitting two seats behind the bus driver when he made threats against a 6-year-old boy.

The bus driver called ahead to the school, and the principal met the bus and took the knife. The boy was suspended from school for 10 days.

Farmington Deputy Police Chief Shane Cote says the 8-year-old has been charged in juvenile court with terrorizing.
