Culpeper County school administrators reported the incident to the sheriff's office on Thursday which involved two Culpeper County High School students. 

The female victim reported that the male has been pressuring her for sex. He has repeatedly touched her inappropriately and she has told him to stop repeatedly.

At one point when she tried to stop him, he produced a pocket knife, opened the blade and put it on her thigh, and said, "You know what I can do." 

Three petitions for possession of a weapon on school property, abduction and sexual battery were issued by the sheriff's office.
