Boulder student arrested on suspicion of threatening minorities

A 16-year-old student at Boulder’s Arapahoe Ridge High School, 6600 Arapahoe Road, was arrested this morning for allegedly threatening to kill minority students at the school on Friday.

The threat was written on a table in the school cafeteria, Boulder County Sheriff’s Commander Rick Brough said.

Brough said the general tenor of the threat was, “I’m killing all Mexicans on Friday.”



Brough said the case was investigated by the Boulder Valley School District and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.

The student, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, is being charged with one count of ethnic intimidation, a class one misdemeanor.



Brough said investigators were able to identify the student because the school resource officer, who is a sheriff’s deputy, remembered the suspect sitting at the table prior to the threat being reported.
