Arrest made in national threats to Jewish community centers
NEW YORK — An arrest has been made in connection with threats made to at least eight Jewish community centers nationwide and the Anti-Defamation League's headquarters in New York City.
Federal authorities in New York said Friday that Juan Thompson has been arrested.
According to a complaint, the threats were made to harass a former girlfriend. The caller used the victim's name while making some of the threats.
The phone threat to the ADL's Manhattan headquarters was made Feb. 22. 90 threats have been made to 73 locations in 30 states in January and February including Tenafly, West Orange and, on Monday, in Cherry Hill.
Thompson was expected to appear in a Missouri court later Friday on charges that include cyberstalking.
There was no immediate information on attorney who could comment on his behalf.
