Teen student charged in Cabrini College bomb threat
RADNOR TWP., Pa. - March 21, 2013 (WPVI) -- Radnor Township Police say they have made an arrest in a bomb threat hoax at Cabrini College this past weekend.
18-year-old Daniel Bowden is charged with Terroristic Threats and Criminal Use of a Communication Facility - both of which are felonies. He is also facing misdemeanor charges, which include False Alarms to Agency of Public Safety, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and Harassment.
The charges stem from Sunday when a bomb threat was called into the Woodcrest Hall dormitory, located on the campus of Cabrini College.
Two female students told investigators that when they answered a wall phone in their dorm hallway, the caller, who had disguised his voice, told them there was a bomb in the building.
Radnor police and firefighters responded to the scene, and with the aid of K9 units from the Folcroft and Trainer Borough police departments, performed a sweep on the building, determining the facility was safe and the threat was a hoax.
The subsequent investigation revealed that Daniel Bowden, a current student, was the person who made the phone call.
Bowden was arraigned Tuesday and released on $5,000 unsecured bail.
