SANDYCREEK TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- State police said two middle school students are facing charges after they put pins into cupcakes that were meant to be eaten by their classmates.
According to police reports, the two juveniles are students at Franklin Middle School in Sandycreek Township, Venango County.
The police report said the boys put the pins into the treats and also spit on the cupcakes that had been made by other students and were about to be eaten.
School Principal Dale Ishman told Channel 4 Action News' Bob Mayo that the cupcakes were made in a home economics class on May 2 and tampered with on the same day. The issue was reported on May 3.
Ishman said the treats were prepared for a May 4 going away party for a student teacher and no one ate or was about to eat them.
A spokesman for Franklin Area School District said that at no time were the students or anyone else in danger.
The school district also said that it was other students who reported the boys' actions to the principal, who then called police.
The juveniles are facing a number of charges, including simple assault.

I hope they are punished severely! They are old enough to know better & know what the possible consequences would be if someone had been injured. If that was in MY child's classroom, I would not accept any less than a rest of the year suspension, criminal charges (at least community service) & a written apology to each student by the little punks!
