Release: Immediate



On Thursday, February 8. 2018 at approximately 2:30pm a female student at Carmel High School (CHS) reported being threatened by a male Carmel High School student with a knife in a restroom. Due to the immediate action by CHS staff and Carmel Police School Resource Officers (SRO’s), the male suspect was taken into custody without incident. Because of the quick actions of the victim, SRO’s and CHS staff, there were no other concerns of student safety.

The juvenile suspect was transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center on the following charges:

  • Intimidation – Level 6 Felony

  • Confinement – Level 3 Felony

  • Battery – Level 5 Felony

  • Criminal Recklessness – Level 6 Felony

  • Possessing a knife on school property - Class B Misdemeanor

Currently, the investigation by the Carmel Police Department continues, but at this point, there is no credible evidence to support this was more than an isolated incident and the victim and suspect had no prior connection. Additionally, there is no evidence to support the suspect intended any further, widespread violence on other students.

As mentioned, this investigation is ongoing and detectives continue to follow up with leads and additional interviews. Safety in our schools is a top priority and concern. Any additional information will be provided as soon as possible.

If anyone has information on the suspects, please contact the Carmel Police Department Investigations Division at 317-571-2500 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 (TIPS).
