Two middle school girls ages 11 and 12, made “a plot to kill students” with different weapons, including a pizza cutter, said the police.

The students “wanted to kill at least 15 people,” Bartow Police Chief Joe Hall said at a news conference. The pair “were waiting in the bathroom for [an] opportunity to find smaller kids that they could overpower to be their victims.”

The girls were then searched in a Bartow Middle School office, where a butcher knife was found on one of the students. Knives, scissors, and a pizza cutter were also found, according to Fox 13.

Both girls admitted to the investigators that they were “Satan-worshippers.” The girls, Hall claimed, said “were willing to drink blood, and possibly eat flesh.”

“As I sat there last night [and] watched these interviews, I do not believe this was a joke,” Hall said.

Soon after the girls were taken into custody, authorities searched their homes and found more attack plans. A hand-drawn map of the school was discovered with the words, “Go kill in bathroom”, written on top.

One of the text messages exchanged in a conversation found by authorities reportedly read: “We will leave body parts at the entrance and then we will kill ourselves.”

In a statement posted to Facebook, Hall stated that no one was harmed in the incident, and thanked school staff for “thwarting this plot from becoming a tragedy.”

The police chief said that all safety protocols put in place worked on Tuesday, and reiterated the key law enforcement phrase: “If you see something, say something.”

“It worked in this incident,” he said.
