As we reported earlier this week, Utica College in upstate New York was completely shut down for most of the day Monday after a ‘credible’ threat was phoned to campus police and school officials.

Now a student has been arrested and charged with making “terroristic” threats.

Fahrudin Omerovic, 23, was arrested Tuesday and charged with four counts of “making a terroristic threat,” according to Utica Police Department spokesman Lt. Bryan Coromato, per ABC. He allegedly used a mobile phone app to disguise his identity.

Reports say he phoned the school again on Tuesday, but police did not deem the second threat credible and took no action.

Omerovic appeared in court on Tuesday and in tears, apologized and told the judge he didn’t mean any harm, according to ABC Syracuse affiliate WSYR-TV.
