Police arrest 19-year-old Hamilton man for threatening local high school


Hamilton police say they have arrested a 19-year-old man after a threat was made at a city school.

It’s the latest arrest in a series of investigations revolving around threats made to Hamilton-area schools.

The force says a 14-year-old girl was arrested on Thursday following a written threat at St. Jean de Brébeuf Catholic Secondary School.

Seven other schools have had written threats made to them and a police spokesman says all the threats are being handled as separate investigations.

Police expect to make more arrests in the coming days.

The recently arrested 19-year-old who made threats at Westdale Secondary School was charged with two counts of uttering a threat to cause death or bodily harm.
