WINCHESTER, Conn. (WFSB/Meredith) - Police have charged four people they say brought cupcakes tainted with bodily fluids to their Connecticut school last year. On Monday, police said they arrested two males and two females who are connected to the case.
"They were made for certain kids and they were given on a day where they were handing out and certain people got certain ones," said Kelsey Owens, the former student.
The cupcakes were taken to the state lab to be tested.
"The kids they didn't like got the ones with dashes through the '7' so they knew those were the tainted ones," Owens said.
Police said they did not believe that the substance reported to have been introduced into the batter and/or frosting was toxic or poisonous. They also said no students or staff reported becoming ill as a result of eating the cupcakes.
On Monday, police said they arrested four juveniles, who turned themselves into the police department after learning about active arrest warrants.
They were charged with fourth-degree conspiracy to commit sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault, and second-degree breach of peace.
Their names are not being released due to their age at the time of the incident.
Police said the case was presented to authorities “after an extensive forensic examination of the “cupcake” and DNA comparisons of the suspect juveniles.”
