A 15-year-old girl has been charged after threats were made to a school in Toronto, police say.

Toronto police said on June 13, officers received a report that a threatening call had been made in the Mount Pleasant Road and Elm Avenue area.

Police said an individual allegedly “made threats to a school.”

Officers said the threats were “unfounded,” adding that no injuries were reported.

Last week, threats made at an all-girls prep school, Branksome Hall, forced a lockdown at the school. The school is located on Elm Avenue. It was not immediately clear if the two incidents are related.
