West Bloomfield Township, MI – Police are investigating after a Jewish community center in West Bloomfield received two threats in the last two days.
At about 8:51 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit, located on West Maple Road, reportedly received a “called in threat.” West Bloomfield police say this is the second threat made in two days, as the community center received a threatening phone call on Tuesday, as well.
Because of the threatening call received Tuesday, people inside the Jewish community center were reportedly told to evacuate that day. Police said Wednesday that the center ramped up security on Wednesday following the first threat, so no evacuations were necessary Wednesday.
Police officers were also at the center on Wednesday for security purposes.
Officials say it is possible that the same person made both of the threatening calls. The threats are still under investigation, and police have not publicly identified any suspects.
