NORWALK, Conn. A father and son were arrested Thursday after threatening to kill a Norwalk pharmacist over the price of a prescription, police say.
According to Sgt. Lisa Cotto:
Christopher Fattahi, 20, of 41 Silvermine Ave. pointed his fingers like they were a gun at the pharmacist at the Vital Care Pharmacy, located at 189 Main Street. He said the pharmacist was "dead" because Fattahi is a gang member and knows where the pharmacist lives.
His father, Robert Bahr Fattahi, 52, of 41 Silvermine Ave., pushed the pharmacist in the chest with a closed fist. He said, "If you don't give me my money back I'll (expletive) kill you."
The pharmacist was not injured. He had come out from behind the counter because the father and son were creating a scene.
Police were called at 4:23 p.m. after the pair fled north on Main Avenue in a gold Mercedes. Officer Tyrone Boyd stopped them at Creeping Hemlock Lane. They were both charged with threatening second degree, assault third degree, conspiracy to commit assault and breach of peace. Bond was $2,500.
Christopher Fattahi is on probation from charges in Georgia.
