LOS ANGELES—A Los Angeles man has been arrested and charged with making a phony bomb threat against a Jewish temple and a police car that was parked nearby.

Wan Ryung Song's arrest on Wednesday comes a day after the threat sparked street closures around the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Koreatown as the bomb squad searched for explosives.

Authorities said the 46-year-old Song called in the threats from public phone just blocks away. Police suspect that he vandalized the temple with graffiti of a Swastika and anti-Semitic comments on Dec. 6

Song was charged with four counts of making a bomb threat and one count of vandalism at a house of worship and one count of hate crime.

He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.
