RIVERSIDE – A 15-year-old boy was arrested after police determined that he was responsible for a bomb threat at Martin Luther King High School. On Wednesday, March 29, 2017, the Riverside Police School Resource Officer, who was investigating the threat learned that the threat made on the morning of Tuesday, March 28, 2017, was made by a sophomore at the school.
The threat, made by phone to the school office was reported to the School Resource officer. Protocols were put in place to ensure the safety of both students and staff. The campus was cleared by the Riverside Police Department’s Technical Services Unit with the help of an explosive detection canine. Nothing was located and the students resumed their day on campus.
“A false bomb threat to a school is not a prank, it’s a crime. The Riverside Police Department will vigorously investigate any crime that occurs at our schools,” said Police Sergeant Aaron Perkins of East Neighborhood Policing Center who supervised the investigation.
