Report to Garland County Sheriff’s Department from Lake Hamilton Intermediate School Principal Stacy Howell:
On October 29, the victim’s father came to my office complaining about another student was harassing his son. We investigated the issue and found out that a fifth grade student had brought a knife to school, showed it to the victim and told him that he would kill him if he didn’t bring him five dollars. Over the past few days, we found out that the suspect had taken $13.00 from the victim and had been harassing him and bullying him to the point that the victim was scared to death. After all the investigating, we called the police and filed a report. The suspect has been suspended for four days.
