Could This Be Bullying?

  Laurens Police were dispatched to a residence at 8:48 last night where a woman reported that her 19-year-old son and his 17-year-old friend were threatened by a younger male juvenile who allegedly threw a knife at them. Both the alleged victims refused to talk with police about the matter, saying they didn’t want to “snitch.” Officers talked with the juvenile subject’s mother, who said her son had told her the two older boys had been picking on him, and when she questioned the 17 and 19-year-old male about picking on her son they began cursing her, and that one of them threw a rock at her. Regarding the alleged throwing of a knife at the two teens, an investigation indicated a knife was found in the street was reportedly came from the younger boy’s grandmother’s kitchen.
