Well luckily, nobody was hurt.
Since crimes committed with knives are typically a personal nature, and not random acts of violence, I'm curious if there are any kids attending your school with a parent who has had a restraining order slapped against them and isn't allowed to see their child. This person would have a past history of a felony, or other violence forbidding them to have a gun. This just stinks to high heaven of a parent planning to kidnap their child from the schoolyard with a knife as the threat. And this kid would have shown a real fear of this parent, not some romanticized view of who that parent is the way some children perceive a violent parent to be...
Anyhoo, think about it. And keep your eyes peeled. If I'm correct, you'll either find another knife, or you'll see this parent watching if their child goes outside with you. Any way you have access to information about restraining orders as they pertain to your students' families?
