San Diego man arrested, accused of making threats while attending Poway Adult School

POWAY, Calif. - A San Diego man was arrested Tuesday after deputies say he made threats while attending the Poway Adult School.

Deputies say last Thursday 20-year-old Jonathan Juarez made statements that he wanted to kill students at the school, which is located at 13626 Twin Peaks Rd.

According to deputies, as Juarez made the statements, he made a motion with his hand as if he were shooting a handgun multiple times and also referenced the Columbine incident.

Students and staff feared Juarez would carry out his threats and called the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, which conducted an investigation.

Juarez was arrested at his San Diego residence on Tuesday. Deputies searched his residence, but no weapons were found.

He was booked into the Central Jail for violating California Penal Code section 422, Criminal Threats. Bail was set at $50,000.

The case will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office.

Anyone with any information on this case should call the Poway Sheriff's Station at 858-513-2800.
