Vt. police say 2 cited after assault at school

Posted: Updated:

WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say two Waterbury students are facing assault charges after a fight at the Thatcher Brook Primary School in Waterbury.

Police were called to the school just before 8 a.m. Friday after receiving a report that a student had been threatened with a knife.

As police were headed to the school it was reported that the same two students were involved in a physical altercation.

Police say David King, 18, threatened Joseph Gates, 17, with a knife. The two were then involved in a fight in which Gates suffered a minor head injury.

The two students were planning to take a bus at the elementary school to Harwood Union High School.

Both were cited to appear in court in November.

It's unclear if they have lawyers.
