Following on from the deadly attack in Manchester in May that left almost two dozen dead, Costa Rican officials have reportedly arrested a man who allegedly made threats to stage an attack on an Ariana Grande concert.

As the Associated Press reports, a 22-year-old Colombian man has been arrested in Costa Rica on suspicion of threatening to stage an attack at Grande’s Costa Rican concert on Sunday night. Local authorities told Costa Rican media outlets that the threats were written in Arabic online, and that the suspect’s family names are Caicedo Lopez.

While the concert eventually went ahead as scheduled, this threat comes less than two months after the deadly attack after Grande’s concert in Manchester, England that left 22 people dead, and many more injured. In the wake of the attack, Grande staged a benefit concert for victims of the attack, raising £10 million.
