SPARKILL, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a foreign exchange student from Spain has been charged with making a terrorist threat against a New York college.

Orangetown Detective Lt. James Brown says the student was arrested Monday after police accused him of making the threat over social media against St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkill.

The alleged threat was first reported to police late Sunday by campus security.

The Journal News (https://lohud.us/1vKcDOW ) says Inigo Aldecoa-Tapia was arraigned on felony charges of making a threat and misdemeanor aggravated harassment. He was held on $10,000 bail.

Police say he was not found in possession of any weapons. The newspaper says the student couldn’t be reached for comment. Information about his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

The school says it was grateful for a safe resolution to the incident.
