Police announced in a statement Tuesday that 35-year-old Dzmitry Papou of Selbyville surrendered to authorities after learning of the case in local media.

Police say two men walked into the Americana Bayside Welcome Center on Sunday and “made alarming statements” to an employee at the desk. Police say that led to the postponement of that evening’s show a few blocks away at the Freeman Stage at Bayside. The Band Perry tweeted that the show has been rescheduled for Aug. 17.

Papou is charged with terroristic threatening and released on $20,000 bond. Police say a second suspect has been identified but hasn’t been arrested.
