BROWNSVILLE (KDKA) — Did a school employee try to arrange to have three current or former administrators assaulted? State police in Fayette County are looking into it.
Brownsville Area School District Superintendent Philip Savini never mentioned it at Thursday’s board meeting, but police say he was one of three intended targets in a possible plot to have them assaulted.
“I cannot say too much. There is an ongoing investigation. Police have been notified of some alleged incidents,” said District Solicitor Jeremy Davis.
Highfield: “Can you at least tell us if anyone suffered any injuries as a result of this?”
Davis: “Nothing has been brought to my attention, no.”
A State Police press release lists Brownsville Middle School as the location of the incident, stating there’s an investigation into whether an unidentified school employee asked another unidentified employee to find someone to assault former Assistant Superintendent Harry Miale.
Miale told Highfield that police hadn’t talked to him yet, and he didn’t know anything about it until Highfield called.
According to the release, police are investigating if it happened a second time with Miale, former Superintendent Lawrence Golembiewski and current Superintendent Savini all being the targets.
No one from the State Police Barracks in Belle Vernon was available to answer questions about the release issued Thursday afternoon.
The local magistrate says no charges have been filed so far.
Davis says no school employees have been relieved of their duties.
The police press release doesn’t actually specify whether the unnamed school employees are indeed from the Brownsville District.
