Boy meant to harm students with knife, Danbury police say


A 12-year-old Danbury boy has been charged with criminal intent to commit murder after he brought a knife to school, intending to harm classmates, police say. The boy was arrested Monday, the last day of classes at the Broadview Middle School. The News-Times reported that a teacher noticed something amiss and asked to inspect the 12-year-old’s backpack. The boy then ran into a bathroom and allegedly threw a knife out a window. The boy’s name has not been released because of his age. He is being held at a juvenile facility in Bridgeport and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
