Alexandria Man Charged in Stone Bridge High School Threat

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office last night identified and located the person who called Stone Bridge High School on Tuesday morning and reportedly made threatening statements over the phone. 

After consultation with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, Robert M. Ruiz, 31, of Alexandria, was charged today with use of profane, threatening, or indecent language over public airways. He was served the misdemeanor warrant with the assistance of the Fairfax County Police Department. 

The investigation stemmed from a phone call that was answered around 10:45 a.m. Nov. 30 by a Stone Bridge High School staff member. 

After the call, the Stone Bridge High School staff and School Safety and Security personnel restricted entrance to the school, placing it on “Secure the Building” mode, and additional members of the Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer Unit were dispatched to the campus out of an abundance of caution.

    I’m glad the suspect was apprehended. It’s unclear exactly what he allegedly conveyed to the Stone Bridge staffer. Obviously, it was enough to have folks very concerned. Here’s hoping there will be fewer & fewer blips along the way as LCPS ensures a quality education for EVERY student. Happy Hanukkah Loudoun!

    What kind of thought process gets you to the point where you call and threaten a school?

    What was the exact nature of the so-called threats? Such that a school was locked down, law enforcement resources were augmented, yet only misdemeanor chargers were filed.
