Teen charged in knife incident at Roll Arena

ELYRIA — When police were called to Roll Arena on Cleveland Street on Friday night for a reported stabbing, officers found a 15-year-old boy carrying two pocket knives.

Police said no one was stabbed, but the boy allegedly threatened roller skaters at the rink with one of the pocket knives.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated menacing and carrying a concealed weapon.

The 15-year-old boy told police he was carrying the knives for protection, as he had to walk home. He denied pulling the knife on anyone, although several witnesses said otherwise.
