Police say the 40-year-old woman made numerous threats against the Sunday parade on Facebook. Residents told police about the threats online, which prompted an investigation.

The suspect was arrested overnight Saturday, and faces a felony charge of making a terroristic threat.

The Erie County District Attorney’s Office assisted in the investigation. Police also thanked residents for telling them about the threatening posts on Facebook.
