The former president of the Aliquippa School Board has been arrested by city police on allegations she threatened to stab two students with a pair of scissors last month.
Aileen Gilbert, 69, of Aliquippa, was arrested today on six misdemeanor and summary charges as a result of the incident.
According to a criminal complaint filed by Aliquippa police Sgt. Steve Roberts, Gilbert entered a STEM classroom at the Aliquippa Junior/Senior High School on Feb. 4 when a “disagreement” took place between her and two female students, ages 12 and 13.
Gilbert was school board president at the time.
