A male student approached a female student with a knife in a restroom at Carmel High School on Thursday afternoon.
Reports indicated the female student disarmed the male student and alerted school officials. Students were held in their classrooms until Carmel Police officers cleared the incident.
Police reports indicate school administrators and police quickly identified and detained the male student.
The suspect, a juvenile, was transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center on the following charges:
- Intimidation – Level 6 Felony
- Confinement – Level 3 Felony
- Battery – Level 5 Felony
- Criminal Recklessness – Level 6 Felony
- Possessing a knife on school property – Class B Misdemeanor
Currently, the investigation by the Carmel Police Department continues, but police say at this point, there is no credible evidence to support this was more than an isolated incident and the victim and suspect had no prior connection. Additionally, there is no evidence to support the suspect intended any further, widespread violence on other students.
