The 14 year old with the metal knuckles and switchblades is a little disturbing. Is there anyway to find out if this was an Edina resident and a student at Southview?

The vast majority of crime committed in Edina is from those who live outside the area. Most commonly, the perpetrators are from Minneapolis or Richfield.

There is an article in the recent Sun Current and the juvenile was arrested inside South View Middle school during school hours and is apparently a student. This is pretty serious and not sure why the school did not communicate this to parents.
