At around 3:45 p.m. Monday, a Berkeley High student was arrested for attempting to use a knife on a security guard at the school.  

The student was skateboarding into the high school when a security guard stopped him. When a group of security guards noticed a knife on the student, he attempted to use the knife on one of the guards.  

A group of security guards tackled the student while the school secretary phoned the Berkeley Police Department to ask for emergency help.  

Two cop cars arrived within minutes and handcuffed and arrested the young man. No injuries were sustained by the security guards.
