KINDERHOOK, N.Y. (AP) - Police say an Amtrak train was stopped in the Hudson Valley after a 32-year-old man threatened to harm fellow passengers.

State police say the train headed to Albany from Boston was stopped in rural Columbia County at about 5 p.m. Thursday. Police boarded the train and arrested William D. Wood of Winthrop, Massachusetts after a brief struggle.

No passengers or Amtrak employees were injured during the incident, which delayed the train by about 45 minutes.

Wood was charged with second-degree menacing and making a terroristic threat and sent to jail.

It could not immediately be determined if Wood had a lawyer.
