On Monday morning, at around 7:00 a.m., the Pleasantview Elementary School contacted the Sauk Rapids police after three students were attacked in the bus station.

Three elementary school students were wounded Monday when they were attacked by second-grader with a knife, reports say.

Superintendent Bruce Watkins wouldn't say how old the child was that brought the knife, only that he is a student at Pleasantview. Police describe the injuries as minor, but two students required stitches because they were cut in the back of the head.

DeSpain also released a photo of Baker and a surveillance photo that police said shows him walking near the time of the crime. The suspect is described as a heavier-set African American female, around 5 feet 2 inches tall, in her mid-20s to early-30s.

Beise said the boy was released to his parents. Then he walked to the school office and put the knife down.

The incident happened prior to the start of classes for the day.

"I don't think he had an intended target when he came to school with a knife", Sauk Rapids Police Chief Chief Perry Beise tells WCCO. Beise says that when officers arrived, the boy was in a counselor's office while the three children, who were not seriously hurt, were being treated by the school nurse. School officials immediately called police and an ambulance. School officials say mental health support is being made available for students and staff who witnessed the attack. The parents of the three injured students chose to transport their children either home or to receive further medical attention.
