Man arrested in Sedgwick County on charge of terrorism

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita police said a 28-year-old man was arrested on a terrorism charge Monday. Around 5:10 a.m., Brendon Tyler May was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail.

911 dispatchers received multiple calls in reference to a post allegedly made by the suspect on social media.

“Officers began quickly investigating this case. The investigation led them to a business in the 10000 block of East Kellogg. Officers contacted the 28-year-old male at the business. He was taken into custody without incident,” said Officer Charley Davidson, Wichita Police Department.

Wichita Police have confirmed that this post on social media led to the investigation.

Police said there wasn’t a specific targeted area or person.

“It was more of a listed event that he was claiming that was going to occur,” said Davidson.

Police said he didn’t have any weapons as same as the post made on social media.

“I believe he had a BB gun from my understanding,” added Davidson.

Police also wanted to thank the public for the calls about the threat.

“This was a great example of if you see something say something,” said Davidson. “We were able to investigate to make sure this community stays safe.”
