FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- A manager at Home Depot contacted Fairfield police after one of his employees was threatened in the store Thursday evening, police said.
According to the police report, a man later identified as Josue Cruz-Ramos, 30, of Philadelphia, went into the store and threatened to kill a cashier and another man.
When questioned by officers, the woman was reluctant to give his name, saying she hadn't spoken with him in more than a month and she didn't think he would hurt anyone, police said.
The manager told police the man had left the store before they arrived in a car with Pennsylvania plates.
Officers were able to contact Cruz-Ramos, and he went to headquarters later that night, police said. He told officers he had gone to the store to purchase several items and denied threatening the victim or the other man.
He was charged with second-degree threatening and held on $500 bond. He was due in court Dec. 10. No information was available regarding his court appearance.
