A man has been arrested for threatening to attack Ariana Grande‘s concert in Alajuela, Costa Rica just weeks after a bombing at Grande’s concert in Manchester, England left more than 20 dead and dozens more injured.

According to The Associated Pressa 22-year-old Colombian man — who’s last name is Caicedo Lopez, according to authorities — was angling to an exact an attack at Grande’s July 9 show but was apprehended by authorities earlier that day. The show ultimately went on as planned.

Caicedo Lopez was said to have posted concerning threats online in Arabic, which police treated as serious because “this is a very sensitive situation and it could lead to a tragedy.”

Grande’s tour wraps up in September.

Twenty-two people were killed and 59 were injured after Grande’s May 22 show, when a 23-year-old man detonated a bomb toward one of the Manchester Arena’s exits as crowds began making their ways home.

Grande eventually made a statement in which she encouraged fans not to fall into hopelessness.

“We will never be able to understand why events like this take place because it is not in our nature, which is why we shouldn’t recoil,” she said. “We will not quit or operate in fear. We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win.”
