Just two days after a woman was arrested and charged with threatening to bomb Beverly Hospital and kill public safety officials, a Gloucester man is in custody for allegedly making a similar threat to bomb the hospital .
Mark Fuller, 51, of Gloucester, was picked up by police Saturday after allegedly threatening hospital personnel over the phone.
According to a statement from Beverly police spokesman Dave Costa, Fuller said he was dissatisfied with treatment at the hospital.
Ashley Galvin, a 20-year-old Beverly woman, faces 23 charges after spending two days last week allegedly threatening police with a series of rambling emails, and saying she planned to bomb the hospital over perceived "unjust treatment."
Costa says police responded to the hospital at about 3:26 p.m. on Saturday. Hospital personnel told officers that Fuller had called to complain about a previous visit and allegedly made reference to Galvin's actions before directly threatening the hospital himself.
In his statement, Costa alleges that Fuller told hospital staff during the phone conversation that "those people in the paper had the right idea, you should all be punished."
Before hanging up, Fuller allegedly stated "You deserve to be bombed, and I'm going to see to it."
Gloucester police assisted in taking Fuller into custody at his residence without incident.
