Police were dispatched Oct. 18 to a local school where there was a report of an assault.

The victim said she had been provoked by another female student who called her obscenities and generally harassed her.

The victim said she would not fight, so the subject hit her in the face with an open hand.

The officer observed cuts and dried blood on her lower lip.
The subject claimed to have not hit the victim at all, but merely pushed her with an open hand to the face. The victim said she wanted to press charges.

Police responded Oct. 13 to a local middle school where a white powdery substance had been seized from a student.
The officer met with the assistant principal of the school, who showed him a small plastic baggy containing a small amount of crystalline substance.

The officer assumed the substance was methamphetamine.

A field test on the substance confirmed it was methamphetamine.

The officer alerted the mother of the subject that the substance was indeed methamphetamine, at which point she told her son.

The subject began punching the ground and screaming “No.” The officer told the subject to settle down and he complied.

The subject was taken to the Curry County Juvenile Detention Center.
