MONACA, Pa. - Police said a student threatened another student with a knife the day after the Franklin Regional attack.

Police believe a 14-year-old Central Valley Middle School student had the knife on him all day long at school and pulled it out on the bus ride home.

The eighth-grader was taken into custody, and the knife was confiscated, police said.

“Within minutes of it being reported, it was dealt with,” said the school’s superintendent.

As for a motive, police aren't going into details but told Channel 11 they are not ruling out bullying.

Parents told Channel 11 that violence at the school has gotten out of hand.

No one was hurt.

The student was charged with assault, terroristic threats and having a weapon on school grounds.

Police have surveillance video but are not releasing it at this time.
