JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police arrested a 13-year-old girl after they say she threatened to “slice and dice” another student.

Witnesses at Nettleton Junior High School, 4208 Chieftan Lane, told police the suspect pulled out a silver multi-tool during breakfast Wednesday and threatened to cut the 12-year-old victim.

The suspect, who was not named due to her age, reportedly said she was going to “slice and dice that [expletive].”

The suspect reportedly said because knife the blade was shorter than 4 inches, she would not be charged.

She then opened the blade and attempted to attack the victim before two other students stopped her, the initial incident report stated.

None of the students reported the incident until after lunch.

School administrators then questioned the suspect who reportedly admitted the knife was hers and said if she and the victim had fought “she was going to cut her.”

Principal David Shipman contacted the school’s resource officer who contacted the suspect’s probation officer who advised she be arrested and taken to the Craighead County Juvenile Detention Center.

In addition to the arrest, the school placed the girl on 10-day suspension.
