Man unhappy about being a virgin arrested after alleged threat to kill ‘as many girls’ as he could
PROVO, Utah (KRON) — A Colorado man who griped on social media about being a 27-year-old virgin was arrested in Utah after he allegedly threatened to kill “as many girls as I can see.”
According to the Denver Post, Christopher Wayne Cleary was arrested at a McDonald’s in Provo over the weekend after several women reported his Facebook post to Denver police.
The message Cleary posted on Facebook reportedly said:
“All I wanted was a girlfriend, not 1000 … not a bunch of hoes … I’ve never had a girlfriend before and I’m still a virgin, this is why I’m planning on shooting up a public place soon and being the next mass shooter cause I’m ready to die and all the girls the turned me down is going to make it right by killing as many girls as I see.”
Cleary’s threats coincided the same weekend as the national Women’s Marches, including one in Provo and nearby Salt Lake City.
He was tracked to Provo where he was staying at an Airbnb rental, according to the Provo Daily Herald.
Cleary was booked into the Utah County Jail on making threats of terrorism, a third-degree felony.
Authorities said Cleary’s social media threat follows a pattern of stalking behavior.
The Post cited two convictions for stalking — one in Jan. 2018 and another in Sept. 2016.
He was already serving a three-year probation term at the time of his arrest.
