Stewart’s hostage suspect appears in court

The man accused of holding two Stewart’s employees hostage in Troy appeared in court on Friday.

Steven Morrow is facing a slew of charges, including kidnapping and weapons charges, in connection to the incident earlier this month.

Troy police say Morrow smashed through the window of the Stewart’s at Vandenburgh and Campbell, and held two employees hostage with a pair of scissors.

Morrow pleaded not guilty on Friday.

He is being held in Rensselaer County Jail without bail, and is expected to appear back in court on June 21.
