Two male juveniles were detained Tuesday on a misdemeanor charge in relation to a bullying incident at Westview High School, according to San Diego police.
The teens were allegedly making harassing phone calls to a former cheerleader who left Westview High School because she said she was being bullied.
Katie Uffens, 16, dropped out of her high school after a group of students allegedly threatened her. Her family contacted police after the incident.
Katie's mother Giselle Uffens told NBC 7 San Diego that she is happy the authorities are taking it seriously.
