In Framingham, Massachusetts, a 13-year-old middle school student faces several charges after threatening his teacher with a knife in an effort to reportedly raise money to buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The incident occurred on Tuesday morning when the student approached the teacher at the end of class with an 11-inch knife.

“Do you have $20? I need the money,” he told the teacher.

The teacher refused and tried to reason with the teen, who then lowered his demand to $1.

The incident ended when the teacher was able to get close enough to the student to snatch the knife from his hands and no one was injured.

“It appears he wanted to buy a game called Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,” Framingham Police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany told The MetroWest Daily News.

The teen spent two to three weeks planning his attack before carrying it out after his mother refused to buy the video game, according to The Associated Press.

The teen was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a knife, and possession of a dangerous weapon.
