A show of “The Band Perry” was postponed in Delaware after security threats were received on Sunday.
To avoid untoward incidents, the organizers released a statement saying that the event has to be postponed, “due to heightened security concerns and for the safety of the public,” as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
The police blasted information to local media outlets to identify these two men who were described as “white men between 20 and 30 years old, one wearing a purple T-shirt and blue shorts, the other in a green T-shirt and shorts.”
Delaware police reportedly arrested one of the two men who made the threats named Dzmitry Papou of Selbyville. He was said to have turned himself to the police after he saw his photos online.
The 35-year-old suspect, along with another suspect, were said to have made threatening statements to an employee when they walked to the Americana Bayside Welcome Center on Sunday, Variety said in a report.
The man has now been charged with felony terrorist threatening and was released with a $20,000 bond. However, the other suspect was no arrested although he has been identified already.
Meanwhile, The Band Perry has tweeted about their performance via Twitter.
The band said, “while we are sad we don’t get to see you tonight, we love you and consider your well-being and security our top priority. We’ll see you soon.”
The Band Perry show will be rescheduled on August 17.
