A junior in the Butler Area School District said he was attacked by three masked men, one armed with a knife, Tuesday afternoon on a pathway leading to the intermediate high school, Butler Township police said.

The student, who wasn't named, was walking to classes at the Program for At-Risk Students when he said he was attacked shortly before 4:30 p.m., with one man holding a knife to his head and demanding money or valuables, which the student didn't have, police said Thursday.

The student, 19, described his attackers as a white male with a gray hooded sweatshirt, a black male with a black hooded sweatshirt, and a third man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

Police said the student was treated at Butler Memorial Hospital for minor injuries, including a mark on his neck and some scrapes.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-285-9600.
