The Band Perry Postpones Delaware Concert, Makes Faces Charges of Making Threat

Delaware police say they've arrested one of two men they say made threatening statements at a Delaware welcome center, prompting the postponement of a The Band Perry show.

Police announced in a statement Tuesday that Dzmitry Papou, 35, of Selbyville surrendered to authorities after learning of the case in local media.

Police said two men walked into the Americana Bayside Welcome Center on Sunday just before 3 p.m. and "made alarming statements" to an employee behind the desk. The threats led to the postponement of that evening's concert a few blocks away at The Freeman Stage at Bayside.

The Band Perry, in a tweet Sunday night, wrote that the show was rescheduled for August 17 "due to heightened security concerns." [[385552171, C]]

"While we are sad we don't get to see you tonight, we love you and consider your well-being and security our top priority," the band added.

Papou was charged with making terroristic threats and released on $20,000 bond. Police say the second suspect was identified but hasn't been arrested.. [[238904721, C]]
