Neighborhood boy charged after allegedly making ‘hit list’ and bringing knife to school

(WXYZ) – A 10-year-old is facing charges after he allegedly made a ‘victim list’, brought a knife to school and asked another student to restrain a student so he could stab him, the Macomb County District Attorney’s Office said.

According to a press release from the Macomb County District Attorney’s Office, the boy at Prevail Academy in Mt. Clemens blacklisted children who were allegedly mean to him and swore at him prior to the Nov. 29 incident.

When the 10-year-old allegedly asked another student to hold a boy so he could stab him, the student allegedly removed the knife and gave it to an adult.

The prosecutor’s office says the minor was arrested and charged with soliciting assault with a dangerous weapon (4-year felony) and having a weapon in an unarmed school (93-day misdemeanor).

“The minor who gave the knife to an adult is a hero. He saw something and said something that saved lives,” Macomb County District Attorney Peter J. Lucido said in a statement.

Lucido says Prevail Academy will be the first school to receive the Macomb County Attorney’s Hero Award, which honors schools when a student or staff member reports a threat of violence.
