PLAINFIELD, N.J. -- (WPIX) -- A New Jersey preschool director allegedly threatened two 4-year-old students with a knife, officials said Wednesday.

Adetokunbo Akinnaso, the 64-year-old director of Dawn To Dusk Christian Childcare and Learning Center, allegedly pulled out a knife and said she’d hurt two students who were in her office for a disciplinary reason if they continued misbehaving. Neither child was injured in the incident earlier this year.

Akinnaso was charged with two counts of cruelty or neglect of children, a fourth-degree offense. She could face up to 18 months in state prison if convicted.

She’ll next be in court on April 2.
