FORT MYERS, FL - A 13-year-old boy is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill after several elementary school students accused him of chasing them with a machete.

The incident occured on Friday at the corner of Nuna Avenue and Hunter's Green Drive.

The four elementary students admit there was some "rough housing" going on, but the teen allegedly told his mother that the kids were bullying his 10-year-old friend.

WINK News has chosen not to name any of the children involved because of their age.

After the alleged bullying incident, the 13-year-old allegedly went home, got the machete and chased the elementary students threatening to "cut their heads off".

The kids reported the incident to their bus driver who then told authorities. The teen was arrested at Oak Hammond Middle School.
