PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. (CBS 2/AP) — A suburban high school has been evacuated because of a threat scrawled on a bathroom wall.

Pleasantville police Chief Anthony Chiarlitti says all students and staff got out of the building, located at 60 Romber Ave., safely.

He says no suspicious package has been reported but police were searching the empty building as a precaution.

The chief would not reveal details of the message spotted Wednesday morning. A note on the school’s website said only that it threatened violence.

Police from the Mount Pleasant and Westchester County forces, as well as Pleasantville’s fire department, were cooperating in the search.

Pleasantville is about 28 miles north of Manhattan.
