Seneca Valley Student Arrested For Allegedly Posting Threat On TikTok

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

HARMONY, Pa. (KDKA) - A Seneca Valley student was arrested for allegedly posting a threat on social media.

The 14-year-old has been charged with terroristic threats and disorderly conduct after the TikTok post forced the district to go remote on Friday, the district said. Jackson Township police and TikTok's safety team worked together to identify the student.

The threat was deemed not credible.

The district also said the student is facing discipline, though it didn't say what actions would be taken.

When students come back from winter break, more police will be at schools, and there will also be random and unannounced metal detector and bag checks for grades 7-12, the district said in a letter to families.

The district is also asking parents to talk to their children about "appropriate online conduct."
