PLAINVILLE - A Plainville resident was arrested Sunday and accused of making a death threat to a 16-year-old girl.

Sebastian Anton-Victor, 18, of 40 Lena Ave., allegedly told the girl over the phone that he would ruin her life and kill her, the girl told police, according to the police report.

He was arrested on charges of second-degree threatening, second-degree harassment and second-degree breach of peace. Anton-Victor was held in custody and arraigned Monday in Bristol Superior Court, where officials said he has no prior criminal record.

During the hearing, Judge John Cronan reluctantly released Anton-Victor on a promise to appear. Cronan said he was particularly disturbed by the age of the victim and the nature of the threat, telling the 18-year-old that, if he crosses the line again, he will be held on a bond that includes a lot of zeroes.

According to the police report, the 16-year-old complainant contacted police Sunday morning to report an alleged threat Anton-Victor made to her. She said he called her around 8:48 a.m. and threatened to ruin her life, according to the report. The girl, who was at work at a Plainville business, then put her phone on speaker mode, allowing her supervisor to hear Anton-Victor allegedly threaten to kill her, the report states.

Police were able to locate Anton-Victor and speak with him Sunday. He admitted to saying he would ruin the girl’s life, telling police she has been trying to ruin his relationship with his girlfriend, according to the report. Anton-Victor denied making a death threat, police wrote in the report.

He is due back in court on June 18, and has been ordered not to contact the complainant while the case is pending.
