GREENWICH, Conn. — A teen was charged this week with writing a threatening message on a bathroom wall in March that led to a lockdown at Greenwich High School, according to Greenwich Time.

At around noon March 29, a threatening message was discovered written on a bathroom stall wall in a girl's bathroom at Greenwich High School, according to police. School officials acted quickly and the school was placed on lockdown while police investigated the threat. Students were gathered in the auditorium while police searched the school for hours.

The Special Victims Section of the Greenwich Police Department continued to investigate the threat and were able to develop a suspect, according to Greenwich Time. An arrest warrant was granted for the high school student, and the student was taken into custody on Monday, Greenwich Time reported.

The identity of the student was not released because of their age. The teen was charged with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace, according to Greenwich Time.
