Former Holy Ghost Prep student arrested for making threat against the school


Christian DiFlorio, 30, a former student at Holy Ghost Preparatory School in Bensalem, has been arrested in Florida and extradited to Pennsylvania to face charges related to the posting of a threatening video.

Bensalem Township Police said they received an anonymous tip that someone had posted a threatening video on Instagram directed toward the Holy Ghost Preparatory School. They then notified administrators of Holy Ghost Prep about the threat.

Bensalem police said they quickly identified the person who posted the video as DiFlorio, and confirmed that he was in Miami, Fla. Bensalem Police obtained an arrest warrant for DiFlorio, charging him with terroristic threats, a felony, and related charges. Miami-Dade Police Department took DiFlorio into custody on the Bensalem Township warrant.

DiFlorio was extradited from Florida back to Pennsylvania. He arrived at the Bensalem Township Police Department on Thursday. He was arraigned by District Judge Jan Vislosky and remanded to the Bucks County Correctional Facility on 10% of $950,000 bail, police said.
