Officers arrested a teenage boy after the boy allegedly advanced on officers while armed with a knife during a well-being check call in Harvard.
The incident occurred around 11:41 p.m. Sunday in the 300 block of Country Brook Lane in Harvard.
Harvard Police Chief Tyson Bauman said an unknown 911 caller stated that he violated his parole and gave an underage family member alcohol.
Officers responded to the location to conduct a well-being check and began an initial investigation.
They found a 16-year-old boy intoxicated outside the residence.
The boy pulled out a knife at one point and “started to motion towards officers,” Bauman said.
Officers stepped back and continued to speak to the juvenile, who eventually threw the knife on the ground.
Officers were able to arrest the boy and transported him to the Kane County Juvenile Detention Center.
He was petitioned to the McHenry County Services on charges of aggravated assault and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a person under 21.
Bauman did not say whether the adult who initially called 911 was also arrested or not.
