Yonkers man accused of threatening note to church

A Yonkers man is accused of leaving a threatening note inside a Catholic church on the Yonkers-Bronx border.



Police say priests from St. Barnabas Church in Woodlawn found a hate-filled note in the collection basket on Sunday.



The note said, "Those who kill you are doing a holy duty of God."



Basil Boland, 66, was arrested Tuesday and charged with making a terroristic threat and aggravated harassment.
