Teen displaying knife frightens Miami Edison Senior High School students

Teen reportedly says knife was meant to scare away boys from 'jumping' him

MIAMI – A 15-year-old Miami Edison Senior High School student was arrested Friday morning for displaying a large kitchen knife in a threatening manner inside the school's cafeteria, officials said.

Miami-Dade Schools police officers responded to the school at 6161 NW Fifth Court shortly before 11 a.m.

A Miami-Dade County School Board representative said the student showed the knife to a group of students at the school and school administrators immediately took it away. No one was injured. 

The teenage boy told police officers he was displaying it, because he was afraid of a group of boys who were going to allegedly beat him.
