Re: Arkansas High School Threat Results in Arrest

 

On Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 2:00pm, Texarkana Arkansas Police responded to Arkansas High School in reference to threats made by a student over social media. Upon arrival the alleged student was detained by school administration after another student reported seeing threatening statements over social media page Instagram.

TAPD Investigators arrived at the school and conducted an interview with the suspect. After gathering statements, the student, a 15yr. old juvenile male, was arrested on scene and charged with Terroristic threating 1st degree.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department will continue to aggressively pursue any reported threatening activity to determine if a serious crime has taken place. If a serious threat has been made the parties responsible will be arrested without exception.

TAPD would like to encourage anyone who has any information to call 903-798-3154 or the Texarkana area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
