Man Arrested for Threatening Attack on Ariana Grande Concert in Costa Rica

A 22-year-old Colombian man was arrested in Costa Rica after authorities suspected him of threatening to attack an Ariana Grande concert. Two weeks later, Grande returned to Manchester for the "One Love Manchester" benefit concert.

According to the Press Association, Costa Rican prosecutors have said that the suspect is a 22-year-old Colombian man.

"The original threat was in the Arabic language and indicated that there could be a situation of danger or an attack at the concert".

The Costa Rica Times claimed that the threat was written online in Arabic and noted that Costa Rica's Judicial Investigative Police launched an immediate investigation into the threat.

Just a few months after a terrorist attack at a Manchester Ariana Grande concert killed 22 people, another one of the popstar's shows was threatened with an attack.

Grande recently paid tribute to Saffie Roussos, the youngest victim of the Manchester bombing, on what would have been her birthday. The pop star has yet to comment on the news but took to Instagram to share her excitement after her weekend gig. Roussos would have celebrated her ninth birthday on July 4.

The family of Roussos also shared memories of the girl that day.

The "Dangerous Woman" singer posted a statement following the attack, in which she said, "We won't let hate win". "We've lost everything. We have".
