Syrian Arabic: bullying

I was wondering if البلطجة is the correct word (in Syrian Arabic): Is bullying a problem at your school?

I'm asking because in Egypt بلطجة refers (at least to my understanding) to guys with weapons that do illegal things.

    I'm pretty sure that is also the meaning of بلطجة in Syrian, although بلطجي (the noun) is not very common in my experience in Syrian in general.
