ALBANY, N.Y. — An Albany man is arrested after allegedly threatening his coworkers at the Albany County Nursing Home Thursday.

George Perment III, 55, is charged with making a terroristic threat, a class D felony.

Officials from the Albany County Sheriff's Office say Perment said "I will get my gun and start with (two specified employees) and whoever else will be next" on Thursday while working at the nursing home as a housekeeper. 

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says this case shows the importance of saying something if you see something.

"We’ve got to make a stand that these types of ridiculous comments are not going to be tolerated in today’s society," Apple said. "It’s our job to vet these comments. So I tell everybody if something is uneasy with you, call us. It’s what we get paid to do. It’s what we’re supposed to do."

Orders of protection were issued for the employees who were threatened. 

Perment was arraigned in the Town of Colonie Court and sent to Albany County Jail on bail of $20,000 cash or $30,000 bond.
