Costa Rica arrests suspect in threats at Ariana Grande show

Thankfully, it seems as though local authorities have tracked down the man in question as a 22-year-old, with the last name Caicedo Lopez, was picked up following a raid on his apartment yesterday.

A Costa Rican man was arrested for online threats made in regards to his plans to stage an attack at Ariana Grande's concert in Alajuela, Costa Rica on Sunday (Jul. 9).

Security at the 24-year-old star's concerts has been increased up in recent months after a suicide bomber blew himself up in a horrific terror attack at her gig in Manchester, north west England, on May 22.

Ariana and her team have not commented on the arrest.

The singer put together a benefit concert, titled "One Love Manchester", on June 4, which featured performances by Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, Niall Horan, Coldplay and Katy Perry. "It was a very sensitive situation".

Following on from the deadly attack in Manchester in May that left nearly two dozen dead, Costa Rican officials have reportedly arrested a man who allegedly made threats to stage an attack on an Ariana Grande concert. Saffie's family also paid tribute to her on her birthday.

The "Dangerous Woman" singer posted a statement following the attack, in which she said, "We won't let hate win". She resumed her European trek in Paris, France days later. "We've lost everything. We have, we've lost everything, because life will just never be the same".
