A teen has been taken into custody in connection with a recent bomb threat, Denton police said.
Police responded to the 1200 block of Bernard Street before 10:30 a.m. Thursday after a 38-year-old woman alleged that two male suspects threatened her, police said. The reports said the suspects told the victim they could make a bomb, add some nails and throw it at her without anyone knowing about it.
The victim, who is employed at the location, told police she later learned that at least one of the suspects, if not both of them, had been on the computer there researching how to make explosives. The victim told police that she feared serous bodily injury and or death, police said.
A 16-year-old male was taken into custody in connection with the case, which is still under investigation, said Ryan Grelle, Denton police spokesman.
