SARATOGA SPRINGS - A teenager is accused of making a threatening phone call to Four Winds Hospital on Friday, sending the facility into lockdown for three hours, police said.
Emilio R. Astacio, 17, allegedly told a hospital staff member, "I have a gun, and I am going to blow all your heads off," Police Lt. Bob Jillson said in a press release.
Police arrested Astacio, of Cohoes, on a charge of making a terroristic threat, a class D felony. He was being held in the Saratoga County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail or $100,000 bond.
If Astacio is able to post bail, he is under a court order to stay away from Four Winds, Saratoga County District Attorney Jim Murphy said. Failure to comply would result in new charges.
It was not immediately clear if Astacio or someone he knows had ever worked at Four Winds, or received treatment there. Also unclear is whether he actually had a firearm.
