The suspect, a 22-year-old Colombian, reportedly made the threat online, according to a statement made by Costa Rican prosecutors. He was identified only by his family names, Caicedo Lopez.
According to investigator Walter Espinoza, the the threats were written in Arabic.
Grande’s Sunday concert in Alajuela went on as scheduled.
