One 15-year-old student in Adams County, Pennsylvania, was slapped with several charges after carrying out an April Fools' Day prank at school that left a fellow classmate superglued to a toilet seat.
The unnamed student is facing charges for simple assault, harassment and institutional vandalism after applying super glue to at least one toilet seat at New Oxford High School, according to WPMT-TV. After reviewing surveillance footage, the suspect was identified and questioned, according to Eastern Adams Regional Police Chief Francis Staub, who added that no specific person was targeted for the prank.
Questions arose after an autistic 15-year-old student became stuck to the toilet seat and was unable to set himself free, according to PennLive. The toilet seat ultimately had to be removed as the victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for abrasions.
After the culprit was found and questioned, he admitted to carrying out the deed but insisted that the prank was not geared toward the victim or any other specific person or persons.
