SKHS student arrested; assault charges in Cedar Heights fight

A 17-year-old South Kitsap High School student was arrested and expelled Thursday for bringing a weapon onto school property and on an outstanding felony warrant.

According to the police report, the suspect admitted to school officials that he had assaulted the principal at North Mason High School last year.

School Resource Officer Bob MacFann then learned the suspect had an outstanding felony warrant in Mason County, and he had made threats in the past to shoot personnel at North Mason High.

He was searched by MacFann, at which time the officer found a three-and-a-half-inch-long knife in his possession.

He was then booked into Kitsap County Juvenile Detention Facility, and placed under emergency expulsion.

In an unrelated incident, a 14-year-old Cedar Heights Junior High School student was arrested Friday after allegedly attacking a fellow student and ruining his glasses following an apparent spitball incident on the bus ride to school.

The teen was charged with fourth-degree assault and third-degree malicious mischief after the alleged victim and a witness reported he punched the victim in the head three times, destroying his glasses.

While being questioned by MacFann, the suspect told him that he had been hit in the face with a paper ball or spitball, and he believed that the victim had done it on purpose.

The victim told MacFann he tried to apologize after the incident on the bus, but the suspect only responded by saying he was going to beat him up.

MacFann noted the victim’s glasses — valued at $200 — had been ruined.
