Bucks County Teen With Knife Tries to Sexually Assault Classmate in School Restroom: Police

A teenage boy armed with a knife pushed a girl into a high school restroom during an attempted sexual assault, according to police in Bucks County.

The alleged attack occurred Friday morning around 6:45 a.m. -- before first period -- inside Pennridge High School along N 5th Street in Perkasie, Pennsylvania.

The 15-year-old boy, later identified as Kodi Michael Hendricks, chased his 15-year-old classmate a knife, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Once he caught up to his classmate, he dragged her down the hallway, forced her into a boy’s restroom and put the knife to her throat in an attempt to get her clothes off and rape her, according to Pennridge Regional Police.

Hendricks never intended to stab the girl, and only used the knife to intimidate her into a rape, according to the affidavit.

A male Pennridge teacher heard screaming coming from the restroom and intervened to stop the attack.

The armed student came out of a stall waving the knife at the teacher and telling him he would he cut the teacher if the teacher didn't back off, police said

Hendricks then dropped the knife and put his hand behind his back, said police.

No one was injured and the building was quickly secured, according to a message posted to the school’s website.

Medics checked out the 10th-grade victim as a precaution.

Police arrived and arrested Hendricks then took him to a district judge to face attempted rape, making terroristic threats and related charges. NBC10 identified Hendricks since he was arraigned as an adult.

Outside court Friday, Hendricks -- wearing an AC/DC T-shirt -- covered his face as he was led to a waiting police car.

Hendricks, who lives in Sellersville with his grandmother, was sent to jail unable to post 10 percent of $100,000 bail.
