UPDATE: Sept. 16, 2:39 p.m.

Joshua Marvin Roberts was booked into jail Sunday after an investigation by the Clay County sheriff’s office beginning last week.

After several interviews with students on Friday, clay county authorities filed a charge of terroristic threat, placing the public or a substantial group of the public in fear of serious bodily injury.

On August 20, a student reported to the assistant principal that Roberts had threatened his sister on the school bus that morning, allegedly telling her to sit down and shut or he would slit her throat.

The student and his sister did not report seeing a weapon, however, the assistant principal reported she had obtained a video of Roberts with a small multi-blade pen knife on the bus and she took the knife away and Roberts was placed on in-school suspension.

The student also reported Roberts has threatened in class to kill him several days earlier, and also made a threat in the hallway to kill another female student because quote: “she was annoying and should be dead.”

Another student reported that on September 4, Roberts told him he was going to bring a gun to school the next day so he should watch out.
