A bogus bomb threat forced the evacuation of Coney Island’s Abraham Lincoln High School on Sept. 25.
Police reported that a teacher found a message scrawled on a second-floor windowsill warning of an impending explosion inside the Ocean Parkway school. Department of Education officials reported that students and staff exited the building en masse at 10:15 am, and waited on the bleachers around the football field while police swept the building. The search turned up no explosives, and the teachers, aides, and pupils returned to the facility at 11:50 am.
Authorities said they are still investigating who left the threatening message.
