A 30-year-old San Bernardino County man has been arrested after police said he made threats to attack students and staff at a community college in Yucaipa.

Authorities say Stanley Roring, a student at Crafton Hills College, posted messages on Facebook stating a "genocide" at the school would be similar to the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre in which 32 people were shot to death by a student.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested Roring at his home a few hours after school officials alerted them to the threats, authorities said. He was charged with making terrorist threats and was being held in jail on $50,000 bail.
