TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police say two teenagers have been arrested for allegedly making online threats against six other high school students and a Tucson school.

Tucson police say the boys - ages 16 and 17 - are being held on suspicion of interference with or disruption of an educational institution and taking the identity of another person.

Police say the juveniles also are facing multiple misdemeanor charges including harassment, threats and intimidation, disorderly conduct, and the use of an electronic communication to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass.

They say the two boys attend Flowing Wells High School.

Police say 5 of the students threatened online attend Flowing Wells and a sixth attends another school.

The nature of the threats weren't released by police and the names of the two juveniles are being withheld.
