16-Year-Old Charged for Possessing Box Cutter

This report was derived from information from the Dobbs Ferry Police Department, it does not indicate a conviction.

A Children’s Village student was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, an A misdemeanor for threatening another student with a box cutter.

According to police, school counselors had broken up a fight between the 16-year-old and an 18-year-old student on the morning of Oct. 2. The 16-year-old allegedly left the building and approached the 18-year-old on the school campus with another student. 

The 16-year-old allegedly approached the victim with a box cutter, which a counselor was able to get away from the 16-year-old. The 16-year-old’s friend then allegedly handed him a tool used for adjusting chainsaws. The counselor sustained a slight laceration, while trying to get the tool out of the students' possession.

The 16-year-old was later taken into custody, charged and held until a judge saw him.

I suppose this is an improvment from the CV miscreants. At least they are confining the crime to CV rather than continuing to terrorize the rest of Dobbs Ferry. These counselors, who function essentially as correction officers, should be trained and armed to defend themselves against the criminal element they supervise.
