Harmas said the girl was able to get the knife and yell for help. Carmel Police say he was taken into custody without incident. The boy was taken to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center where police say he's facing charges of intimidation, confinement, battery, criminal recklessness and possessing a knife on school property.
