A 13 year-old female is charged with Uttering Threats following an incident at a school in the 2400 Block of Retallack Street.
School Resource Officers were contacted by the school at approximately 8:00 a.m. this morning, May 26, 2023. School administration told officers they had learned of threats made by a student towards the school. As a precaution, the school was put into ‘Secure the Building’ mode for most of the morning while police investigated.
At 11:20 a.m., officers located the suspect and she was placed under arrest. The school returned to normal operating procedures a short time later.
As a result, a 13 year-old female, who cannot be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is charged with:
- Uttering Threats [cc 264.1(1)(A)]
The youth will make her first appearance on this charge on July 6, 2023 at 9:30 in Youth Provincial Court.
* ’Secure the Building’ occurs when there is a real or reported threat outside of the school. This results in school activities continuing inside the school, but outdoor activities are curtailed and access in and out of the school is carefully controlled.
