GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — A 15-year-old South Carolina boy has been arrested after authorities say he yelled “snatch her up” at a young child getting off the school bus, causing the girl to run away.

Greenville County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Flood said the teen yelled at someone he had just dropped off after seeing the girl get off the bus Tuesday.

Flood says the girl ran because she was afraid she was going to be kidnapped, but was later found safe.

Flood said in a statement that the teen called it a prank, but Flood says deputies will not tolerate these types of incidents.

The teen is charged as a juvenile with interfering with the operation of a school bus. His name was not released.
