WILTON MANORS (CBSMiami) — Police have arrested a man after allegedly making violent threats against the gay community in Wilton Manors.

Craig Allen Jungwirth, a 50-year-old party promoter, was taken into custody in Orlando for driving without a license, Wilton Manors Police announced.

Investigators said recently on his Facebook page, he wrote:

“None of you deserve to live. If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.”

Adding a bizarre twist to the threats is the report that Jungwirth is a gay man.

The post continued on: “You can never catch a genius from MIT and since you fa****s aren’t dying from AIDS anymore, I have a better solution to exterminate you losers. I’m going to be killing you fa** faster than cops kill nig****. It’s time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS-infested losers.”

Authorities thanked the community for their help in alerting them of the threat.

“They took the see-something-say-something initiative and reached out to us and provided us additional details,” said Wilton Manors Police Cmdr. Gary Blocker.

Jungwirth was federally charged with Threatening Communications for knowingly transmitting “in interstate commerce a communication containing a threat to injure the person of another.”

“Now with the new federal charges, he’s done. It’s over and we can all let our guard down and enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend,” said Nick Berry, owner of Rumors nightclub. “Wilton Manors Police did a fantastic job.”

FBI Miami and Tampa Joint Terrorism Task Forces, along with the Orlando Police Department, Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, Wilton Manors Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol continue their investigation.
