Image Released of Westmont School Threat Suspect

Upper Yoder Police have released an image from security cameras at the school showing the suspect they believe left the threat at the school Monday.

Chief John Blake said they are looking for a slender individual with dark hair and glasses. They don’t know the gender of the suspect based on available footage.

Blake said the note left at the school was a lengthy and thought-out letter that contained credible threats to Westmont Hilltop students and teachers.

Cambria County District Attorney Greg Neugebauer said law enforcement has been reviewing the available evidence, taking statements, and conducting an in-depth investigation.

“Westmont Hilltop School District was clearly ready to properly react to this incident, Both the School Administration and Law Enforcement’s response to this situation is another example of how seriously we take the safety of our schools and students. School is meant to be a safe place for our youth to learn and grow, and Law Enforcement Officers will continue to investigate this matter to its conclusion.”

Anyone with information on the case can contact Upper Yoder Police at 814-255-6227 or the Cambria County non-emergency line at 814-472-2100.
