A 13-year-old juvenile has been arrested after allegedly waving a weapon on the sidewalk in front of Terrebonne High School.

Officers first received reports of the incident around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in front of Terrebonne High School on Main Street. Police say they received reports that a juvenile was waving a weapon in the area.

School resource officers allegedly tried to confront the juvenile who fled toward Adoue Street. Houma Police responded to the scene. They state they saw the juvenile throwing the weapon into an adjacent yard.

Following a brief foot pursuit, officers apprehended an unnamed 13-year-old juvenile. He was arrested for illegally carrying a weapon on school property and resisting arrest.

During the course of the investigation, Houma Police say they learned that the suspect was also wanted for an attempted robbery in front of the school on Monday. The 13-year-old reportedly approached another juvenile on Main Street and punched him several times. He attempted to take the victim's phone. Houma police subsequently charged him with attempted simple robbery.

The 13-year-old is being held at the Terrebonne Parish Juvenile Detention Center.
