Denver-based Frontier Airlines has disciplined two employees who allegedly made a noose and showed it to a black co-worker, the company said.

Denver police have cited one of the workers for an alleged “bias-motivated crime.”

A man allegedly showed the noose to the co-worker and asked “are you ready” in a break room at Denver International Airport on April 15, police said.

Frontier spokesman Steve Snyder said the man, who was ticketed by police, and another employee accused of making the noose have both been disciplined. Snyder did not specify what actions were taken.

The airline is stepping up diversity training for workers at the airport, Snyder said.
