Student charged after allegedly bringing knife to Lombard elementary school

A 10-year-old student at Park View Elementary School in Lombard was charged Feb. 21 with bringing a large kitchen knife to school, according to news release from the DuPage County State's Attorney's office.

Lombard Police on Feb. 19 received information regarding a male student who allegedly brought a knife to school, located at 341 N. Elizabeth St.

Through the course of their investigation, police learned that the student was allegedly in possession of a knife and allegedly stated in the presence of another student “everyone in the school is going to die," the release stated.

The student has been charged with one count of disorderly conduct – threat of violence at a school, a Class 4 felony, and two misdemeanor weapons charges.

“The fact that a ten-year-old boy allegedly made this type of a threat is extremely disturbing,” DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin said. “The safety and well-being of our students as well as staff and other school personnel remains a top priority of my administration, and any threat directed at our schools will be fully investigated."

His next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 25 in front of Judge Robert Anderson.
