NEWTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — Newtown police have arrested a man who they say called in a threat to Sandy Hook Elementary School last month.

According to police, on August 15, a man called the main office at Sandy Hook Elementary School and asked when the first day of school was. When told the first day of school was August 29, the man processed to make a threat against the school for that day.

Police began to track down the phone number and found it to be from a nearby town. The investigation eventually identified the caller as 28-year-old Pierre Beauvil of Stamford.

An arrest warrant was obtained for Beauvil and he was arrested on September 2. He is charged with breach of peace, second-degree harassment and first-degree threatening.

Officials are working to determine if Beauvil made threats to any other schools.
