Damian Baez, 40, of Jersey City, was charged with making terroristic threats, according to Police Det. Lt. Danilo Cabrera.

On Saturday, July 24th, the Hoboken Police Department received an anonymous call regarding threats made on a social media post. The threats appeared to have been a warning of violence to come in the Hoboken Housing Authority.

Det. Sgt. William Collins and Det. Fabian Quinones initiated an investigation and identified the alleged actor as Baez. The following day, Quinones generated an arrest warrant for Baez charging him with terroristic threats.

Later that evening, Police Officer Jessica Arebalo located Damian Baez and he was placed under arrest for said warrant. Baez was then processed and transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, authorities said.
