DANBURY, CT (AP) -

A 12-year-old Danbury boy has been charged with criminal intent to commit murder after police say he brought a knife to school, intending to harm classmates.

Police arrested the boy Monday, the last day of classes at the Broadview Middle School

School Superintendent Sal Pascarella tells the News-Times a teacher noticed something amiss and asked to inspect the boy's backpack.

Pascarella says the 12-year-old ran into a bathroom and threw a knife out a window.

The boy's name has not been released because of his age. He is being held at a juvenile facility in Bridgeport and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
