Violent incidents allegedly broke out at the Sept. 15 football game between the city's two high schools at Thomas Worthington High School, 300 W. Dublin-Granville Road.

A boy threatened another student with a knife, and a large group caused a stir that led to Worthington Division of Police officers escorting another boy from the game "for his safety," according to reports.

In the first incident, a 14-year-old Worthington Kilbourne High School boy allegedly pushed another student, pulled out a knife and threatened him.

The student fled and informed a police officer, who went looking for the boy with the knife.

Officers found him and discovered that he was carrying a knife.

He was charged through Franklin County's juvenile court with aggravated menacing and carrying a concealed weapon.

The other incident occurred when a "pretty large crowd" gathered in what some reported was a fight.

Sgt. Jim Moran said officers saw a fairly large group "screaming and yelling and pretty out of control" and had to call for backup.

Eventually, one boy was escorted to his car "for his own safety" and the situation was unclear as "conflicting" accounts surfaced.

Moran said one side's version of the story "began to break down" when officers looked at the incident on video review.

No charges were filed, and the school officials said they are handling students' punishments internally.

In other recent Worthington police incident reports:

* A business owner on the 100 block of East Wilson Bridge Road reported Sept. 13 a customer sent an email containing "threats of harm."

When officers investigated the claim, the person who wrote the email reportedly was surprised it had been taken as a threat and apologized.

Moran classified the language as "veiled threats at best," and no charges were filed.

* A Worthington resident said his motorcycle was stolen while it was parked overnight Sept. 15 and 16 on the 800 block of Griswold Street.
