Student brings knife to Memorial h.s.
A Memorial High School student was arrested this Thursday morning while allegedly trying to bring a “long fix-bladed kitchen knife” into the school, according to the Madison Police Department.
An incident report states a plow driver called 911 after seeing the student walking near the school with the knife around 9:21 a.m.
“The witness said the suspect attempted to conceal the weapon up a sleeve after realizing he was being watched by the plow driver,” the report states.Principal Matt Hendrickson wrote in an email to families that the SRO, a security assistant and the dean of students took the student into custody after making contact at the door.
