An Oberlin Man is Threatening Actor Richard Roundtree

Posted By on Tue, Jul 30, 2013 at 11:09 AM

The Threat Management Unit of the Los Angeles Police Department got in touch with investigators in Oberlin on July 22 to outline a series of threats made against actor Richard Roundtree, famous for his role in 1971's "Shaft."

One of the letters threatened to have the actor's “throat cut” before explaining that he would be “dropped into the Pacific Ocean to be eaten by sharks” if he were to sign on to projects with particular directors.

They were reportedly sent from a West College Street address in Oberlin, according to the Chronicle-Telegram. No charges have been filed.

Oberlin police say the threats, though at times creative, aren't credible.
