Bomb threat delayed PA college graduation


A bomb threat forced a Pennsylvania college to push back its graduation ceremony.

Police say Bloomsburg University rescheduled one of its undergraduate graduation ceremonies originally scheduled for Saturday morning after they received that bomb threat.

Investigators and police dogs searched the area but didn’t find a bomb.

Students say they’re frustrated, but glad everyone was safe.

“I’m sad that they would try and run this day for everybody and scare everybody, you know, because I was honestly scared to come to my second commencement speech because I thought something would happen,” said graduate Doronella Simon.

The graduation was postponed until Saturday afternoon.

Police are still trying to figure out who called in the bomb threat.
