3. The suspects, aged 9 and 12, were arrested after another student confessed to seeing the boys putting something in the teacher’s water bottle. That child’s parent called the school.
The poison was procured and administered by the younger boy, who was assisted by the older boy, Deputy Police Commissioner Stephen Davis said.
4. Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said it was a “small amount” of the poison that the children put in the water bottle.
“My understanding is the 9-year-old wanted to see what the reaction would be,” Bratton told the New York Times. “God knows where kids get these ideas.”
6. In a statement, the Department of Education said it is monitoring the situation.
We are greatly relieved that the teacher is recovering and we continue to closely monitor this situation. Ensuring the safety of our entire schools community is our priority, and while this matter is still under investigation, we will take swift and appropriate action.
