Juvenile who made threats to two Bay Ridge schools arrested

A juvenile from Bay Ridge who made threats to two local schools on social media was arrested Thursday and released to his parents, a police source said.

The boy — who had allegedly posted rambling threats to a Bay Ridge-centric Facebook page sometime between Wednesday night, Jan. 9 and Thursday morning, Jan. 10 — named P.S. 102 and P.S. 104 specifically, as well as the 68th Precinct.

The 68th Precinct deployed officers to both schools out of an abundance of caution, but later tracked the poster’s I.P. address and deemed the mass threat to be a hoax.

The boy, whose name was not released because of his age, was charged with aggravated harassment and making a false report.
