The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that a 22-year-old Columbian man was arrested in Costa Rica after suspicious threats towards Ariana Grande’s concert in Alajuela on Sunday.
Costa Rican prosecutors and Head Investigator Walter Espinoza said the suspect posted threats online in Arabic but was identified by his family’s name. Threats were taken especially seriously before the performance; only two months have passed since 22 people were killed at the singer’s performance in Manchester, England.
The Dangerous Woman Tour was paused after the attack in Manchester on May 22nd and started back on June 7th in Paris. No comment has been made by or on behalf of Ariana Grande regarding the threats or the arrest, and Grande’s summer tour is likely to continue as planned.
