BETHANY, Okla. - Authorities responded to a local high school after an altercation involving a knife on Thursday morning.

Shortly before 10 a.m., police were called to Putnam City West High School on a possible stabbing.

Steve Lindley, director of communications for Putnam City Public Schools, says two students at the high school got into an altercation when one of them pulled a knife.

However, Lindley says no one was actually stabbed.

Officials say German Chavez-Carranza pushed the victim against a wall and pulled out a knife.

At that point, he allegedly grazed the victim with the knife but he was not cut.

That's when a school administrator walked into the cafeteria and Carranza ran to another student's car and took off.

Putnam City security officials would not comment on the incident, only saying there is a situation at Putnam City West.

Officials say the driver of the getaway car was taken to a juvenile center.

Carranza is facing charges for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a weapon on school property.
