A 20-year-old who posted a stabbing threat at a Hanwha Eagles baseball game has been arrested by police. He made the announcement in a live comment section on YouTube, but police caught him in less than a day thanks to international cooperation.
On the 20th, the Cybercrime Investigation Unit of the Daejeon National Police Agency said it had urgently arrested Mr. A (23) on suspicion of making threats.
Mr. A is suspected of posting the words, “Next game, I’ll go for a stabbing, I’ll kill everyone,” in the live comment section of the Hanwha Eagles TV YouTube channel at 1:57 a.m. that day.
The police launched an investigation after receiving a report from a citizen, and through a follow-up investigation, including requesting international cooperation from the United States, they arrested Mr. A at 12:58 p.m. that day at his residence in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do.메이저사이트
Mr. A reportedly stated that he had bet on the Hanwha Eagles and KT Wiz game on the 19th of this month at a sports betting lottery as a Hanwha Eagles victory, but when the Hanwha Eagles lost, he wrote the post out of conviction.
A police official said, “We maintain strong cooperation with overseas countries as well as overseas companies with many users in Korea, such as Google, Meta, and Twitter.” “We will concentrate all our investigative efforts and strictly punish the murder notice posts that cause social unrest.”
