Two 16-year-old males have been arrested in connection to bomb threats targeting Washington, D.C., schools, police announced. 

One of the threats resulted in second gentleman Doug Emhoff being evacuated from a high school by Secret Service agents on Tuesday.

One Southeast D.C. teenager was arrested and charged with "Terroristic Threats in connection to multiple bomb threats." 

The other 16-year-old is from Northwest D.C. and was arrested and charged with "Terroristic Threats" in connection to a bomb threat at Kipp DC College Preparatory school on Wednesday.

Threats were made at eight D.C. schools, causing students to be sent home. No dangerous materials were found.

The arrests come as the FBI is investigating bomb threats at more than a dozen Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The agency has identified six "tech savvy" juveniles as suspects.
