Authorities are investing a threat made against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, reports The Hill.

A tweet posted Friday morning included aggressive language targeted at the Tea Party favorite and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston.

“What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” wrote Twitter user @ArmyVet54, who identified himself as serving in the Army and Navy and who later on Friday posted another threat — that Cruz needed to be “taught a street wise lesson.”

A spokesman for the Capitol Police said they are looking into the matter.
