A 14-year-old boy faces charges in juvenile court after police said he tried to take a large hunting knife into Uniontown Area High School.

Officer Mike Garrow of Uniontown Police said the freshman had the knife in a backpack when he tried to enter the high school Thursday morning. Garrow said the boy was acting suspiciously and was reluctant to pass through a metal detector. The boy tried to leave, but Garrow said he stopped him and discovered the knife.

Garrow said the teen has been placed on suspension. He is to be charged through juvenile court with possession of instruments of crime and disorderly conduct.
