HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A 64-year-old man was arrested after police say he threatened to send a bomb to a business in downtown Hartford.

Police say they received a report around 4:50 p.m. Thursday that a caller repeatedly asked an insurance specialist at Access Health Care for the address of the Prudential Financial building.

Police say when the specialist asked what the Hamden man wanted to send, he said “a bomb” and then hung up.

Investigators responded to the scene and used the specialist’s account records to identify the man as Gary Leiderman.

Police have charged Leiderman with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace. He is being held on a $75,000 bond. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
