PHOENIX - A high school student in Phoenix is facing charges for allegedly having two knives on campus and throwing one at a police officer.

Phoenix police say the 16-year-old girl is detained at a Maricopa County juvenile center on suspicion of aggravated assault on a police officer and disruption of an educational facility.

Police say North Canyon High School officials were notified around 8 a.m. Thursday about a girl who was dressed in all black.

Arriving officers found the girl in a hallway waving a bread knife and a steak knife.

They say she threw one knife at an officer before she was restrained and arrested.

The girl is a junior at the school, but her name wasn't released. Thursday was the second day of classes.
