The 15-year-old boy arrested Friday morning at Waiakea High School for notes left in a school bathroom between Wednesday and Thursday has been charged.

Police say the teen, whose identity will not be revealed as he is a minor, was charged at 11 a.m. with second-degree terroristic threatening and fourth-degree criminal property damage.

The Hawai’i Police Department reports that he was released to his family and that the case will be turned over to the jurisdiction of Family Court.

Notes left on the walls of the bathroom threatened violence on the school’s campus.
