Police in Norwalk say a 12-year-old student at Nathan Hale Middle School and his 13-year-old friend are charged with threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon and conspiracy.
Authorities didn't release their names because of juvenile offender laws.
Police say the 12-year-old boy was apparently upset about a phone conversation he had with the intended victim last week and brought the knife to school last Wednesday. Officials say the 13-year-old boy held the knife in his locker for his friend.
The Hour of Norwalk reports that Principal Robert McCain learned about the knife from other students Wednesday.
