Suspect in school attack allegedly held knife to classmate's throat

GLEN ST MARY, Fla. -- A 17-year-old is facing multiple felony charges after she allegedly held a knife to a friend's throat at school.

According to a police report from the Baker County Sheriff's Office, the May 13 incident was planned the night before by the teen suspect, who also wrote a suicide note before getting on her school bus bound for Baker County High School.

The 17-year-old was in the cafeteria, seated at a table with a group of students prior to the incident, according to the report. A witness told deputies the suspect was laughing and joking, even complimenting the victim before asking the victim to stand. The victim complied, thinking the suspect was going to braid her hair or hug her, but instead the suspect allegedly grabbed her by the hair and held a knife to her throat. A witness told deputies the suspect then yelled "[expletive] is about to get real!"

BCHS staff was able to free the victim and remove the knife from the suspect's hand, according to the report, but not before the suspect battered the victim in the face and kneed her in the stomach.

Later the suspect allegedly told deputies she had intentions of approaching the BCHS School Resource Officer and demanding his weapon so she could kill herself and that she had plans of "going on a rampage making the cop shoot her." The suspect also allegedly stated she had thoughts of killing others before such as shooting up the school or hiding in the bathroom, pulling girls into stalls and decapitating them. "Just random girls, whoever she could get her hands on."

The suspect also claimed to have two steak knives in her pockets, a filet knife in her purse and a small blade to cut herself with, according to the report.

The suspect appeared before Judge Mark Moseley Tuesday morning and was charged as an adult. She is facing three charges: felony aggravated assault with a weapon, felony aggravated battery and simple battery. The suspect is currently being held on a $300,000 bond.
