Summit County Sheriff's deputies say threatening words were scrawled on a restroom wall.

GREEN  Summit County Sheriff's deputies investigating a reported school threat have arrested a 10-year-old student.

They arrested the boy Friday after their investigation into what they said were "threatening words that had been written on a bathroom wall at the Green Intermediate School" on Thursday, according to a news release Monday from Inspector Bill Holland of the Summit County Sheriff's Office.

Green school administrators notified parents about the incident, and additional deputies were sent to the school.

The child was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of inducing panic and taken to the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.

Stark County Sheriff's deputies arrested an 11-year-old Glenwood Intermediate School student last week after he was accused of re-posting a school threat. He was charged with felony inducing panic and misdemeanor telecommunications harassment, according to an article in Saturday's edition of The Canton Repository.

The child was one of several area students, ranging in age from 14 to 17, who were arrested on charges stemming from school threat-related investigations last week. News of the threats resulted in high absence rates in area school districts.
