Student arrested after Wyoming High School threat

WYOMING, OH (FOX19) - A Wyoming High School student has been arrested after threats were made at the building Tuesday, school officials announced.

Wyoming Police say the student is charged with two counts of aggravated menacing and has been transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.

Extra officers patrolled the school Wednesday after a male freshman made a verbal threat to another student, who alerted a school administrator, said Susanna Max.

Max said the student will serve a multiple day suspension and the administration is looking at a heavier disciplinary action, Max said.

"I want to stress that the safety of our students is our district's #1 priority. We will continue to be vigilant on our security measures and crisis plans at all of our schools and school activities," Dr. Susan Lang, district superintendent, said in a statement announcing the arrest Wednesday.

The student accused of making the threat did not attend school Wednesday, Lang said.

"We recognize the additional concerns surrounding threats made at the high school yesterday. We have been in close contact with the Wyoming Police Department all night and we can assure you that they are carefully monitoring the situation," Lang wrote parents in an email Wednesday morning.
