GROTON – A Lisbon student was arrested by Connecticut State Police for threatening another student at a school in Groton on Instagram.

The threat instigated a three-agency investigation that involved Groton Police, State Police and  the U.S. Coast Guard, because the threatened student lives on Coast Guard property.

Police said the 14-year-old who lives in Lisbon was issued a juvenile summons for second-degree threatening and second-degree harassment.

Police said that at about 9 p.m. Wednesday, school administrators called to say that a student had made a threatening statement on social media to a student of the Marine Magnet High School in Groton.

Police said the suspect “didn’t have the means to carry out the internet threat.”
