Police say they’ve arrested a 15-year-old boy for threatening to blow up a southwest Kansas middle school.

The incident was reported shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday. Dodge City police learned a 13-year-old girl was in class at the middle school when she got a call from a blocked number.

“The male caller started using profanity, and the student hung up the phone,” police said on Facebook. “The blocked caller immediately called back, and the female student put the phone on speaker for the teacher to listen. During that second call, the unknown male caller stated that he was going to blow up the school.”

Officers located the teen caller at his Dodge City home just after 8 p.m. Charges for aggravated criminal threat, a felony, will be filed with the Ford County attorney’s office
