(York) -- Investigators allege a disturbance at a York elementary school that prompted a lockdown was caused by a father angry about the handling of an incident that involved the bullying of his daughter, who is a student.

Thirty-year-old Eric Schelmety of York is charged with terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and other counts.

Court documents state that Schelmety started smashing windows with a mop handle and vacuum cleaner, destroying light fixtures, ripping things off the walls, Thursday afternoon, threatening to kill everyone in the Phineas Davis Elementary School.

He didn't get beyond the lobby.

Police said he was arrested at the school the day before after making similar threats.

No one was hurt.

Schelmety was being held Friday on a half-million dollars bail. It wasn't known if he had an attorney.
