Knives on Campus

There were two incidents on Santa Rosa High School campuses yesterday involving knives. First at Santa Rosa High School when early in the morning two students got into a gang related altercation and one pulled out a kitchen knife and slashed the other boy. The 14-year old victim called family members who transported him to the hospital for treatment for non-life threatening wounds. SRPD was notified and launched an investigation, eventually locating the 16-year old suspect at his home. Inside they found the knife, parts of a handgun and gang related items. While that was taking place, a student at Montgomery High was identified as having a 9-inch folding knife on campus. Staff attempted to search him on campus, but he was able to escape. Police were called when staff eventually detained him off-campus and recovered the knife.
