A 14-year-old juvenile has been charged with making online threats against a Bedford Middle School student, his family and other students at the school.
Police detectives said the threats by the teen -- who was not publicly identified because of his age -- were discovered by a teacher reviewing an online survey posted by a student. The posting detailed the threats, which were to be carried out June 21, the last day of classes in the school year, police said.
The posting, however, mentioned no specific method to carry out the threats, police said, and no evidence was discovered of plans to act on the threat.
Using information from the only, detectives and school officials were able to determine the identity of the teen who posted the threats.
The teen was charged with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace. He was detained at the state Juvenile Detention Center in Bridgeport and was scheduled to appear Thursday in juvenile court.
