BATON ROUGE - Police said a 10-year-old from Iberville Parish left a threatening message at St. Joseph's Academy in Baton Rouge this weekend.

Lt. Don Kelly with Baton Rouge Police said the boy was charged with Terrorizing and released to his parents. He said the boy has no known connection to the school, and the cause of the threat still isn't clear.

The school received the threatening voice mail Saturday, which a spokesperson said threatened bodily harm to people at the school on Monday.

Kelly said the school decided to hold Monday classes after Mayor-President Kip Holden assured them there would be a significant police presence.

School administrators said they're meeting with the police and district attorney today to discuss the matter, and if the increased security is still needed.
