The 18-year-old suspected of making threats against Sammamish High School remains in custody on $1,000,000 bail. The King County Prosecutor’s Office charged Isaiah Foster with Felony Harassment and Felony Cyber Harassment in court today. Foster allegedly threatened to kill a student at Sammamish High School. The student received the threat while at school on Friday, December 9, and reported it to school officials. Foster was arrested at his Seattle home less than three hours after the initial report.
Multiple Bellevue police officers responded immediately, secured the building and remained there throughout the day. Officers also provided patrols at the other Bellevue high schools as a precautionary measure.
“We understand the fear this incident caused for not only the students and faculty at Sammamish High School but the community at large,” said Chief Wendell Shirley. “We are committed to working with the Bellevue School District to ensure a safe learning environment for everyone.”
Foster’s next court appearance will be his arraignment on December 22, where he will enter an initial plea.
