NEWTOWN, Conn. –Newtown police arrested a man on Friday afternoon, two weeks after he made a threatening call about the first day of classes the new Sandy Hook Elementary School, according to Fox 61.

The school received a call Aug. 15 asking when the first day would be, Fox 61 said. When told it was Aug. 29, he made a threat for that day.

The arrest came after an investigation by the school’s resource officer, Fox 61 said.

Fox 61 said police believe Beauvil may be responsible for previous school threats.

In March 2014, Daily Voice reported that a 25-year-old man was arrested on charges of entering two Stamford schools illegally and prompting them to go into lockdown.

The man arrested was identified as Pierre Beauvil, a former student at Westhill High School in Stamford. The threats occurred at Roxbury Elementary and Westhill.

It was not clear whether it was the same person involved in the Stamford and Newtown incidents. A search of the Connecticut Judicial Branch database was inconclusive.
