A man in the United States has been arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill President Joe Biden and members of Congress. This was reported on Tuesday on the website of the US Department of Justice.
According to the prosecutor’s office for the Northern District of Oklahoma, 58-year-old John Ahrens sent a series of emails to a local TV channel from May to June of this year. In them, he allegedly wanted to pay him an unnamed amount of money. If the demand is not met, the man threatened to kill the American leader, representatives of Congress, and their family members.
Ahrens was arrested on June 18 at his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. During the interrogation, he allegedly confirmed sending threatening messages. He must be formally charged within 30 days of being detained. The Ministry of Justice does not specify what punishment the man faces if he is found guilty.
