BROADALBIN, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A Gloversville man was arrested on Thursday and is accused of stalking at a Broadalbin Stewart’s Shop. Willard Bishop, 56, faces multiple charges.

On Thursday around 7:30 p.m., troopers responded to the Stewart’s Shop on Second Avenue in Broadalbin for a report of a suspicious man. Troopers identified the man as Bishop.
