Police are investigating an incident on Thursday during which two juveniles allegedly took a knife to Yough Intermediate Middle School and used it to cut a seat on a school bus.

Dr. Janet Sardon, superintendent of Yough School District, said on Saturday that the incident occurred during the students' trip home from school and school officials were notified the next morning.

No students were threatened with the knife, Sardon said. School policy will be followed in taking disciplinary action against the students, she said.

Police said charges will be filed against the two in Westmoreland County Juvenile Court.
