(ABC 6 News) -- On Monday morning, the Rochester Police Department was called to a business on 1st Ave. SW in Rochester. An employee there called to report a man who had come in and made a threat against a prominent Rochester developer and businessman.  The victim's name has been retracted at the family's request.

The suspect, who police identified as 58-year-old Christopher Caffes of Rochester, allegedly went into the building and was speaking with an employee there who he knows. The employee said Caffes had been having some mental health issues. Caffes allegedly told the employee, "I know my time in Rochester is short. Before I go, I'm going to put a knife in [retracted name's] back."

According to Rochester Police Lt. Mike Sadauskis, the developer said he was considering hiring private security for his offices after police notified him about the incident. He also apparently told police his family has a long history with Caffes,

Around 4:00 Tuesday afternoon, police got a trespassing call at Holiday Inn downtown. Police say the suspect, in that case, was Caffes. Officers searched his backpack and say they found a six-inch knife in a sheath. 

Caffes was arrested and is facing a terroristic threats charge.
