Two Brooklyn boys were arrested after their fourth-grade teacher told police she believed her students put rat poison in her water during class this week, police say.

The 51-year-old teacher went to a police precinct and told officers she thought the poison had been put in her water bottle during class Monday at P.S. 315 in Flatbush, according to the NYPD.

A 9-year-old boy and a 12-year-old boy were arrested and charged with attempted assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

Police say authorities are conducting tests to determine what substance, if any, was put in the bottle.
