Police remove Austintown Middle School students from bus

Posted: Updated:
Police removed two Austintown Middle School students from a bus Thursday morning after they allegedly threatened each other through text messages.

According to a release from the school district, the Middle School principal received a phone call from a parent who reported that threats had been made by another student to commit an act of violence involving a weapon against his son on the bus ride to school.

School Superintendent Vince Colaluca tells 21 News that the principal contacted township police who pulled the bus over on South Raccoon Road and removed two students.

School officials say the seriousness of the situation was the result of escalating conversations through social media, which
occurred off of school premises.

The superintendent says the students will be disciplined by school authorities for affecting the academic day.  He says it's up to the parents of the students to decide if they wish to pursue charges for harassment via social media.

There was a rumor that a weapon was involved, but Colaluca says no weapon was found on the bus.
