A 12-year old boy was arrested and transported to the Faulkner County Juvenile Detention Center after admitting to bringing a kitchen knife to Simon Intermediate School, 1601 E. Siebenmorgan Road.

A Conway Police Department officer was called to the school by a member of the administration when they received a tip that the boy was in possession of the knife. The boy told the officer that he brought the knife in case the kids in his athletics class "messed with him again." The boy’s parents were notified of the incident.
