'Las Vegas part two'? NY man arrested for threat

NYC man threatens Las Vegas-style massacre if app company didn't pay him

A Midtown man threatened to go on a Las Vegas-style massacre against a Colorado-based company that he claimed cheated him out of money, federal prosecutors said. He's expected to appear in court in the Brooklyn borough of New York Wednesday afternoon.

The spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's office in Brooklyn, N.Y., John Marzulli said, the 34-year-old Victor Casillas from Brooklyn, N.Y. has been arrested by F.B.I. agents on Tuesday night in midtown Manhattan. The F.B.I. agents arrested him after the man sent images of two MAC-11 submachine guns to the Denver business' officials and threatened to convert it into the Las Vegas part 2.

When the company wouldn't pay Casillas, federal prosecutors say he began sending them threatening emails, with the first one coming on September 26th, 2017.

Casillas allegedly sent a hit list which mentioned the names of seven officials of Denver company Ibotta.

The company undertook a review of several Casillas accounts in late 2016 and early 2017 and determined "they represented a potentially fraudulent effort to generate referral bonuses".

He also said that he had arrived in Colorado to attack the company, but authorities say there's no indication he actually traveled to Denver. On Sept. 26, the company advised Casillas a recently opened account would be deactivated. "I wanna know who your spouse and children are too and I'm not asking you I'm telling you, I want to know who your parents are as well if the pieces of trash are even still alive (for now) for that matter".

"GET READY FOR A LAS VEGAS REPEAT (Final Warning)", Casillas wrote to the company on October 4, according to court papers, adding, "I I STILL HAVE NOT RECIEVED [SIC] MY GOD (D-n) FLTNDS.A--s".

Casillas also wrote that he was in Denver and attached a photo of submachine guns in a September 27 email, according to court records.

If convicted, Casillas could spend up to 20 years in prison.

His lawyer did not return an immediate request for comment.
