Two threats near area schools are averted.
First in Troy, Police have arrested a 13-year old for bringing a pellet gun to school on Tuesday. They say there was a plot by four boys to shoot up a school dance. The dance went on as planned with a "highly visible" police presence.
And in Albany, an man was questioned after apparently grabbing a girl by the arm near Giffen Elementary School Friday morning. Witnesses say it's not the first time he'd been hanging around the bus stop.
Police say that the girl was savvy enough to yell and scream when he got too close.
