SALISBURY — A 56-year-old man from Leicester was arrested on multiple charges following an incident in Salisbury early this morning.

Authorities say they were notified that Leon Forrest was following and threatening people at the Moosalamoo Campground at around 1:15 a.m.

Police say that Forrest threatened to kill Leslie Karzmarczyk, 56, of Port Henry, NY, and Robert Karzmarczyk, 55, of Port Henry, NY, as well as two juveniles.

Forrest then operated a vehicle in a grossly negligent manner while following the four victims.

When Forrest lost sight of the victims, he searched several campsites, waking the other campers in an attempt to locate them.
