SALINA, Kan. (AP) — An 11-year-old Salina boy is in legal trouble after a group of children told police he threatened them with a knife.

KSAL-AM reports the incident occurred Tuesday evening on a school playground.

Police say the boy pulled out a butterfly knife with a 4-inch blade and waved it at four other children during an argument over his bicycle. The children -- two 9-year-olds and two 11-year-olds -- also told police the boy threatened to go home and get a gun.

The boy was arrested on four counts each of aggravated assault and making criminal threats. He was later released to his parents.
