Congressman Robert A. Brady (D., PA) has requested that U.S. Attorney Zane Memeger conduct an investigation into the arson at Penn Wood High School in Yeadon and a bomb threat phoned in last week to the Cypress Street campus of the William Penn High School. Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux has reported that the message indicated that the school would be “blown up.”


Congressman Brady said, “We cannot tolerate this level of destruction and threats against our schools, our students and their teachers and administrators. Therefore, I am requesting that there be a thorough investigation by the U.S. Attorney of these dangerous acts and serious threats against this community.


“In a letter sent today I have requested that the U.S. Attorney conduct an investigation into the break-in and arson at the Penn Wood High School in Yeadon that were preceded by multiple threats against the school.


The arson, that caused considerable damage, has now been followed today by a telephoned threat to blow up the William Penn High School also in Yeadon. Any threat to blow up our children must be treated as a high level and real threat.”
