3 students arrested after knife brought to middle school

Three students from Luther Burbank Middle School were arrested Wednesday morning about 10 a.m. after a knife was brought to campus, police said.

Officers responded to a call about a child bringing a weapon to school and making threats to use it against others, said Burbank police Sgt. Robert Quesada.

School officials received word that the student allegedly had brought a knife to campus on Tuesday, Burbank Unified Supt. Stan Carrizosa said. The student, whom officials did not identify, was interviewed to determine where he had allegedly put the knife and then was suspended.

“We did know that students saw him in possession of the knife and that he may have hidden it on campus,” Carrizosa said.

His two friends were also suspended for allegedly not disclosing their knowledge of the knife, Carrizosa added. They were also arrested on suspicion of conspiring to use the knife, police said, although school officials were working to determine their intent.
