A Page man was arrested Tuesday after making threats against Navajo people on Facebook. Police arrested 34-year-old Daniel Franzen, who said in a post that “all Navajo’s are infected with COVID-19” and began to make threatening comments. Police immediately opened up an investigation and Franzen was arrested a short time later. He was booked into the Coconino County Jail for attempting to incite an act of terrorism, which is a class three felony. Page Police say additional hate speech will also be investigated, including threats that were made against Franzen after he made the post.
