A source tells The Peekskill Post that Tuesday’s lockdown of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital was caused by a threat made by former Peekskill resident Anthony Alfano, who was angry over a billing dispute with the hospital.

“Apparently Mr. Alfano is not happy about a bill he received for services in the hospital and expected a reduction in price,” said a source. “He spoke to more than one person in Accounts Payable, was not satisfied and started to get agitated. He was transferred to another department which gave him the same answer and then he threatened to go over to the hospital and take out his angst on employees. Wham! Code Orange.”

Our source added that Alfano, “Has some delusions of having been in the military or in some sort of policing.”

A second source says that once the lockdown was put in place, employees at the hospital were given copies of Alfano’s driver’s license, which listed his address as Villa at the Woods in Peekskill.

“They issued a copy of his driver’s license for use of his picture to employees to keep vigilant and it said 4201 Villa at the Woods,” said the second source.

When asked to confirm the information above, Geoff Thompson, a hospital spokesperson, said the hospital would not be commenting any further on the matter.

New York State Police said that Alfano is currently a Bronx resident who has been charged with Aggravated Harassment in the second Degree, a Class A misdemeanor. When asked if Alfano’s actions were caused by a billing dispute, Trooper Melissa McMorris said she knew “nothing about the reason behind the threat.”

Through a press release, McMorris provided the following information:

At 2:10 p.m., State Police responded to the hospital for a report of a threat made against hospital staff via telephone. Subsequent to an investigation conducted by police, the caller was identified as Anthony G. Alfano. Alfano turned himself over to police at the Cortlandt Barracks where he was arrested and charged.

The defendant was arraigned before the Honorable Daniel O’Brien in the Village of Buchanan Court and remanded to Westchester County Jail in lieu of $1,500 cash bail.  Alfano is due to appear in the Town of Cortlandt Court at 9 a.m. on Jan. 13.

    new to everything. Do you have any recommendations
    for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during
    my search for something concerning this.

    Is there a means you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
