On 9/4/19 @ 1535 hours – An Officer received a report that a juvenile male had brandished a knife towards another juvenile male.
This occurred in the park area (The Lazy Green) across Rodney St from Helena Middle School. A 13 year old male brandished a pocket knife towards another juvenile male and walked towards the male with the knife brandished.
The other male was able to get away from the male brandishing the knife. Both males left the area and this incident was called in to Police a short time later. There were no injuries to either male. Investigation into the matter led to a 13 year old juvenile male being charged with felony assault with a weapon.
The 13 year old juvenile male was transported to the Juvenile Detention Center in Great Falls, MT. He was left in the custody of JDC. This incident took place after school had been let out for the day.
This case is active as the investigating Officer is following up with witnesses.
According to social media posts, this child was being bullied by others and had made multiple reports that he was being bullied, yet no one did anything to protect him or to reign in those who were the bullies.
The 13-year-old then took matters into his own hands being the victim of being bullied, but now is the criminal.
