ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Two young boys, ages 9 and 13, allegedly threatened a friend April 13 by holding a knife to his throat.

Police were called out to Webb Bridge Court about 8 p.m. They spotted the young boys who allegedly committed the assault as they were running away from the officer. Officers tracked them down and interviewed them. One boy claimed they had not used a knife but a stick.

The other boy said he did hold a knife to his friend’s throat but it did not touch his neck.

A steak knife, which is the suspected weapon, was found in the boys’ home.

The boys claimed the incident happened during a dispute over a fort in the woods behind the apartments. The assailants were turned over to their parents.
