  • Man accused of threatening Biden, Harris in note to neighbor

He was identified on a Ring door camera.

"This is a warning to anyone reading this letter if you are a Biden/Harris supporter you will be targeted", the letter states. "We have a list of homes and addresses by your election signs. We are the ones with those scary guns, We are the ones your children have nightmares about", the letter read in part.

WJZ13 said that the remainder of the letter was too graphic for them to print, but that it included plans to beat up Biden, sodomize Harris, kidnap, and execute them on television.

If convicted, Reed faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison.

A door camera captured video of a person resembling Reed leaving the letter on his neighbor's doorstep early on the morning of October 4, authorities said.

Prosecutors say Mr. Reed didn't know the homeowner and meant to leave the letter at the first house he came across with campaign signs for Mr. Biden.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, Democratic presidential nominee, left, and Senator Kamala Harris were at the centre of the threats.

"The right to vote and peacefully support the candidate of your choice are bedrocks of our democracy", U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur said in a statement. Such threats to commit violence are illegal and have no place in our democracy, and we will hold accountable those who make them.

The letter also threatened an act of sexual violence against Harris.

An anonymous tip to police led to investigators to question Reed at his home last Tuesday, prosecutors said. After initially denying to investigators that he had written the threatening letter, Reed later admitted to it on October 15.

He told prosecutors that he was "upset at the political situation", adding people making threats "will happen" due to "the political climate".

The agent noted that Reed was "known to" the Secret Service for making a threatening statement against an unidentified person under the agency's protection in 2014.

Reed is now in state custody and a federal warrant has been lodged as a detainer to ensure his appearance in U.S. District Court at a future date.
