MANSFIELD, Texas (AP)

Police say they confiscated a pocket knife with a 2-inch blade after taking the 66-year-old into custody.

Two students told their parents that William Allen took them out of the bus this week. He reportedly threatened to cut their wrists if they didn't admit eating Oreo cookies and leaving crumbs.

One parent says no matter how good an employee Allen is, the girls are ``traumatized.''

Allen has been taken to jail. A school administrator says he's been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
