A Massachusetts man has been arrested after he allegedly sent white powder in an envelope to Donald Trump Jr.’s Manhattan apartment last month, Fox News reported Thursday.

The 24-year-old, Daniel Frisiello, is accused of sending the letter, The Hill reported, and he faces charges of five counts of mailing a threat to injure a person and five counts of mailing a hoax threat.

Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, was hospitalized after she opened the envelope.

The white powder was later discovered to be non-hazardous, and no one was harmed.

The letter was postmarked from Boston, and the white substance appeared to be corn starch.

Officials familiar told NBC that the letter said:

“You are an awful, awful person. I am surprised that your father lets you speak on TV. You the family idiot. Eric looks smart. This is the reason why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the fu*k up.”
