Juvenile Attacks Hazelwood Teens with a Sickle Blade
The 16-year-old teenager was wearing a 'Scream' mask and wielded the sickle at a group of Hazelwood teens in a secluded area near railroad tracks, according to KSDK.
A 16-year-old teen is charged with second-degree assault for allegedly attacking another teen with a sickle Tuesday in Hazelwood.
Authorities say the attacker was wearing a mask like the one seen in "Scream" movies and wielding a sickle, according to KSDK.
Hazelwood Police Department Capt. Gregg Hall spoke with KSDK's Sharon Stevens following a news tip to the station about the incident.
"He put his sickle at the neck of the male juvenile in a threatening manner," he told Stevens. "The male juvenile pushed him away, forced the kid to the ground, took the sickle away from him."
The group, which consisted of three 16-year-old teens, a boy and two girls, were walking in a wooded area near some railroad tracks when they were ambushed from behind. Police say the group knows the assailant whose name isn't being released because he is a minor.
