Police in Fort Collins are alerting religious organizations to a self-described “Islamist jihadist” who said Mormons and Catholics “would be destroyed” in the next two weeks. They say there’s no immediate public danger.

The Coloradoan reports Christopher Dewitt Craig was accused of entering a classroom at Eastern Arizona College on July 10, raising a Bible in the air and responding with obscenities after asking the instructor whether he was Mormon. College spokesman Todd Haynie says a female counselor had a similar encounter.

The Greeley Tribune reports University of Northern Colorado spokesman Nate Haas says Craig is a former assistant men’s basketball coach for the school.

Haynie says police arrested him, but prosecutors didn’t pursue charges.

Craig recently was spotted in Steamboat Springs and leaving Rocky Mountain National Park.
