Also make sure to block communications with the user and file a report through your console Don't send a message to the person once blocked as that will remove the block.

This is actually classed as Cyber bullying and one of the best ports of call would be here:


Bullying is not against the law but harrasment and threatening behaviour is. As you have already stated the messages were threatening physical and verbal abuse and that is against the law. Consult this website and get more information about the next course of action you can take,  also keep all new messages as well for evidence.


Yes I do agree that Microsoft would be your first port of call but as it is turning into a more serious situation with physical and verbal abuse that is against the law and you need to consult specialist advice
