Authorities in Middlesex County and the Director of the New Brunswick Police, Anthony Caputo, announced today that a juvenile male has been taken into custody and charged with acts of juvenile delinquency for offenses.

Officials say that, if committed by an adult, would constitute false public alarm, terroristic threats, and bias intimidation.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone reported that on Thursday, September 7, 2023, New Brunswick Police received a report detailing violent and anti-Semitic threats made towards a school administrator on the Instagram page for the New Brunswick Public School system.

According to officials, following an investigation by Officer Jose C. Gomez of the New Brunswick Police, it was determined the messages were sent from a residence in New Brunswick.

Authorities say as a result of a continuing police investigation, a 16-year-old juvenile male was identified as the perpetrator.

On September 8, officials stated the juvenile male was taken into custody and charged with an act of juvenile delinquency for offenses which, if committed by an adult, would constitute Bias Intimidation, False Public Alarm, and Terroristic Threats.

Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone said that on September 11, a hearing was held before a Family Court Judge in New Brunswick, where it was determined that the juvenile would remain in custody at the Juvenile Detention Center.

The investigation into this incident continues, officials said.
