The man, who lives in NY, was arrested by officers on Tuesday after allegedly sending threatening voice messages on his Xbox to the boy.

Michael Aliperti, 45, threatened on Monday night to come to the boy's home and cause him pain, alluding to where he went to school in Kings Park, Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron said.
