Police Charge Bullied Pa. Boy With Making Threats

BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – State police say they’ve charged a 14-year-old boy with making violent threats against other students who bullied him at a western Pennsylvania high school.

Police patrolled Blairsville High School as a precaution Thursday, and say the boy is being charged with terroristic threats, risking a catastrophe and disorderly conduct.

Trooper John Matchik says the boy did not compile a written list of targets, but he is accused of making violent threats against several students. Matchik says police have no information that the boy was “prepared to act or carry out any of these indicated threats.’’
