SELBYVILLE, Del.- Delaware police said they've arrested one of two men they said made threatening statements at a Delaware welcome center, prompting the postponement of a The Band Perry show.    

Dzmitry N. Papou, 35, of Selbyville, turned himself in to troopers Monday evening after learning of photos of himself through WBOC's broadcast.

Police said Papou and the other man walked into the Americana Bayside Welcome Center in Selbyville at about 3 p.m. and "made alarming statements" to an employee at the desk. As a result of the exchange, The Band Perry concert at The Freeman Stage at Bayside was postponed.

According to court documents acquired by WBOC, Papou and the other suspect, went to the welcome center to inquire about getting tickets. When they were told that the show was sold out, they became "distraught."

"One of the suspects then said what if we jump the fence," the documents stated. "And (the woman at the desk) said they would be kicked out by security and potentially arrested. One of the suspects then said well what if we jump the fence with guns."

The Band Perry posted on its Twitter feed that the show has been rescheduled for Aug. 17.

Papou was charged with one count of terroristic threatening, a felony, before being released on $20,000 unsecured bond and a no contact order with Americana Bayside.

Police said the second suspect has been identified but has not been arrested.
