Ansonia High School 

ANSONIA, CT (WFSB) – Ansonia High School went into a temporary lockdown on Monday morning after it was reported that a man with a knife was trying to get into the school.

It happened just after 10:30 a.m.

The man had left before police arrived, but he was later located driving away from the school.

Police later discovered that the man was at the school to pick up a family member and had a medical issue and needed to use a bathroom, so he was looking to get inside.

The man had a folding knife in a sheath on his belt.

Police said the knife was never displayed or used in any way.

The school was temporarily locked down until the matter was resolved.
