Downtown Mpls. bomb threat suspect charged with felonies

Philip Pariso is facing two counts of terroristic threats and two counts of kidnapping, the Pioneer Press reports. Police say the Inver Grove Heights man walked into M&I Bank in downtown Minneapolis on Friday and said he had a bomb.

The threat led to the lunchtime evacuation of Gaviidae Common and surrounding streets.

WCCO-TV reports the station turned the suspect away earlier in the day when he asked to speak with a reporter.
