Cuyahoga Falls schools, police investigate threat received over weekend
Cuyahoga Falls families with children in the city's school district were advised Monday that the district and police were investigating a telephone threat the district received over the weekend.
Superintendent Todd Nichols said the threat was a six-second, computer generated voice message left with the district at 9:37 p.m. Saturday.
"The message threatened shooting up the school and used racial slurs," Nichols said, adding the threat is not believed to be credible.
It was not clear which school was the subject of the threat.
Nichols said the district and police were working to identify the perpetrator, and that extra officers would be patrolling and had been assigned to buildings Tuesday.
"These types of situations remind us: If you see something, say something," he said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the school district, or police at 330-928-2181.
