2 students removed from 2 schools

Friday was a bad day for some city school students.

Fort Wayne police had to haul off two kids at two separate schools in two separate incidents, according to police reports.

In one, a Snider High School student complained that a girl had pulled a knife on him Thursday in front of two other students.

“I will cut you,” the girl allegedly said.

When an officer looked in the girl’s purse Friday, she found the knife that had a 4-inch blade.

At Lakeside Middle School the same day, a boy racked up three referrals by constantly calling people names and not doing what he was told.

He ended the day by calling a student a derogatory name and slapping him in the face.

Both the Snider girl and Lakeside boy were arrested.
