Authorities lock down Central Point daycare after receiving threats
Central Point Police locked down Noah’s Ark Early Learning Center at 305 Oak St. Wednesday just after noon after authorities received reports of a man who threatened the children.
Authorities say 35-year-old Richard Anthony Maldonado was standing across the street near the Central Point Public Library when he starting shouting and threatening to shoot school children. The learning center, which practices lock down drills frequently, immediately locked down while authorities contacted and apprehended Maldonado.
Police charged Maldonado with disorderly conduct for allegedly perpetrating the incident.
