MINNEOLA — A 10-year-old girl was arrested Friday afternoon after reportedly bringing a knife to school at Minneola Elementary Charter School according to police reports.

Police say a student came forward and warned staff members at the school that the girl had a knife hidden in a stuffed animal that she carried in her backpack and was showing the knife to other students.

Officers and staff members searched the girl’s backpack where they found a stuffed animal with an opening in the seem.
