An 81-year-old man has been charged with burglary, menacing and harassment after threatening an employee at a Warrensburg Stewart’s Shop.

Police say it happened Tuesday night around 8:30, when Harold Bechmann of Warrensburg was asked to leave the store but refused.

He then allegedly threw an item across the store at the employee and began to approach him in a threatening manner.

An off-duty Glens Falls police officer restrained Bechmann and took him outside until Warren County deputies could respond.

Bechman was held in police lockup and is scheduled to appear in Warrensburg Town Court at a later date.
