GOOSE CREEK — A 10-year-old student has been suspended from Westview Elementary School after bringing a knife to school last week.

A parent notified police after his daughter reported seeing the boy with an open pocket knife aboard a school bus on Thursday. The girl was frightened and intimidated, but not injured, according to a police report.

The school principal told officers she had already suspended the boy, notified the school district and is awaiting an expulsion hearing, police said. She turned the knife, which had a three-inch blade, over to police.

Police opted not to charge the boy because of his young age.
