Fontana Student Arrests - The Dark Side of the Web

Posted: Updated:
Since Friday three students have been arrested in the Inland Empire accused of making threats against students and teachers at two area schools. One is Fontana Middle School in Fontana. The other is Summit Intermediary Middle School in Ettiwanda.

Fontana Unified School District Chief of Staff Olivier Wong says the threats were made on a smart phone app called KIK. This isn't the first time threats have been made using social media, but Wong says there was a specific list of students and staff members in the suspect-students cross hairs and that triggered their arrests and an immediate investigation.

The first arrest, a 13-year-old boy, came Friday. The other arrests were Monday. Those students were arrested as accomplices. All have been released to their parents.
