A Cortlandt teenager was arrested for allegedly threatening a fellow student with a knife early Wednesday morning before school, State Police said.

The two kids were near Hendrick Hudson High School, but not on school grounds, when they were arguing a few minutes before 8 a.m., cops said.

A passerby told police the 16-year-old threatened the other student with a knife, saying he would stab the victim, cops said. The witness, who was dropping another student off at the Albany Post Road school, called State Police, who later found the teenager and arrested him.

The youth was charged with second-degree menacing and fourth-degree weapons possession, both misdemeanors. He was arraigned Wednesday in Buchanan Village Court. The 16-year-old did not have an attorney listed in records Wednesday.
