FREMONT -- A disgruntled hospital guest who refused to leave a Bay Area hospital after he learned visiting hours were over and threatened to shoot security guards was behind bars Wednesday.

Najibullah Noory, 39, of Union City was arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats inside Washington Hospital Tuesday night, said police Spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.

Noory had arrived at the hospital to visit a family member, but was told by security that visitation hours had ended, police said. He reportedly became upset and threatened to shoot the security guards with a handgun.

Police were dispatched at 6:50 p.m. to the hospital at 2000 Mowry Avenue for a report of an unwanted guest, Bosques said.

He was located by police on the first floor of the hospital, Bosques said. Officers with guns drawn searched him, but no weapon was found. Police also searched his vehicle, but nothing was found inside it either.

Noory was booked into the Fremont Jail where he was being held Thursday on $50,000 bail.

Jail records list his occupation as a wholesale accountant.

He is slated to be arraigned on the charge Thursday at the Fremont Hall of Justice.
