LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

A student was arrested on Friday at Lebanon High School for allegedly bringing knives to school, according to the school district. 

Students reported the suspect after hearing about the knives, after an investigation by the school officials, multiple knives were found in the suspect's possession. 

It is unclear what the suspect's intention was with the weapons or how many they had. No students or staff were harmed. 

Lebanon City School District says two other students are being disciplined for their involvement. 

The school district did not release information about the student's arrest until late Friday afternoon, saying the information was embargoed, meaning the arrest was not intended to be reported on earlier in the day. FOX19 NOW did not agree to an embargo. 

Lebanon High School posted this to Facebook:

Earlier today, students reported that another student was in possession of knives at school. We immediately investigated and recovered the knives. One student was arrested by the Lebanon Police Department and two other students were disciplined as well. Lebanon High School continues to be a safe place for our kids as want to emphasize that our processes worked; students reported concerns to an adult, an investigation began immediately, and the offending students and knives were removed from the building. Please take this opportunity to discuss with your student their role and importance of notifying and sharing concerns with a school employee. Thank You and have a great weekend.
