The discovery of a threatening graffiti scrawl at High Tech High Media Arts led Tuesday to a heightened police presence at the Point Loma charter school.

The San Diego Police Department sent patrol personnel to the Farragut Road school Tuesday morning as a precautionary security measure, according to SDPD public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez.

Hernandez said he was unaware of the nature of the threat, and the school did not immediately respond to a request for information.

According to television news reports, the menacing massage was found in a girls’ restroom at the campus. The nature of the threat it contained was not made public.
