FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Police say a man accused of making threatening phone calls to Sanford in Fargo had an earlier physical confrontation with security staff at the hospital.

Fifty-three-year-old Peter Rovang (ROE’-vang) of Moorhead, Minnesota, is charged with felony terrorizing.

KFGO radio reports that Rovang identified himself in one call to the hospital on Friday and in another call told a Sanford operator he would blow up the facility if he wasn’t given the names of the security officers involved in the previous altercation.

The threats led to added security precautions at the hospital.

Rovang is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday.
