The New York City police say two students at a Brooklyn elementary school are accused of trying to poison their teacher.

Police say the two boys, ages 9 and 12, allegedly put "a substance consistent with rat poisoning" in the teacher's water bottle Monday. The two were charged as juveniles with attempted assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police say the teacher became nauseous the next day. She was treated and is OK.

The substance was being tested.

The boys attend P.S. 315.
