A 14-year-old Glen Robertson youth faces eight charges – including two counts each of assault and assaulting police – following a recent incident at a Cornwall high school. The suspect was arrested on November 10 after he allegedly choked a female staff member and grabbed a male staff member and tried to assault him with an office stapler.

He also threatened to blow up the school. When police arrived to apprehend the suspect, he allegedly resisted arrest by biting, kicking and spitting at the attending officers. He was later released and is scheduled to appear in court on December 8.
