Possession of a Weapon on School Grounds – On September 13 at 9:29 a.m., the School Resource Officer (SRO) assigned to Lake Ridge Middle School located at 12350 Mohican Road in Woodbridge (22192) was contacted regarding a student who assaulted another student with a knife while on school property.

The investigation revealed two 12-year-old female students made arrangements to bring a knife to school that day. That morning, one of the students brought a knife and gave it to the other student. The 12-year-old student then entered a classroom where the knife was brandished and held to a separate 12-year-old female student’s neck.
