A student at a high school in Rock Hill was charged Thursday with bringing a knife to school, police said.
A Northwestern High School student faces one count of possession of a weapon on school grounds, said Rock Hill Police Department Capt. Mark Bollinger.
School administrators searched the student’s book bag and called police after the knife was found, according to a police report. The weapon was a folding knife with a 2 and 1/2 inch blade, police said.
The student was given a juvenile summons citation for the offense and released to the custody of a parent. The student will appear in Family Court, police said.
