First Grader Found With Knife; Other Student Injured

Scary moments for children on one Beaufort County bus this morning, a child was found with a steak knife and another child was injured.

It happened on bus 137, which was headed to Eastern Elementary School in Washington.

School spokeswoman Sarah Hodges says the first grader showed the knife that was in their book bag and another student received "a very minor injury."

Washington police say they are investigating what they called an assault on the school bus.

The first grader was disciplined according to Beaufort County Schools policy.

Hodges says parents with students on the bus were notified this afternoon by letter as to what happened.
