    Police said two teens made threats against Danbury High School.

    Danbury police have arrested two juveniles who they said threatened a Danbury High School student, as well as the whole school.

    Police started investigating when they received a report of a threat a Danbury High School student received. 

    A boy had placed a call saying he was going to harm the student and “everyone else” at Danbury High School, police said.

    The investigation revealed that the call was made from a home in Danbury and police identified two juveniles believed to be responsible for the call. Police said the youths conspired to contact the victim and make threats. 

    Arrest warrants were issued for both, charging the juveniles with threatening in the first and second degree and conspiracy to make threats in the first and second degree.

    The juveniles were arrested on Monday morning and transported to the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.   

    They both told police that the call was only intended to be a prank, but the Danbury Police Department has a zero tolerance on threats are made toward schools, police said.
