FARMINGTON — A former Alsco employee entered the Farmington business on Thursday and pointed a gun at his former boss.

The man left shortly after confronting his former employer and was quickly apprehended by police, said Farmington police spokeswoman Georgette Allen.

"There was not a hostage situation," Allen said.

The incident was reported shortly before 3 p.m. Police arrived shortly after, and the suspect had already left.

No one was injured.

"He just walked in and put a gun in (the boss') face and bitched at him and walked out," said Ted Bitsui, an Alsco employee.

Alsco is a linen supply service business that operates out of a green and white building on Cedar Street in south Farmington. The business provides uniforms for the industrial businesses and the restaurant and health care industries.

Many Alsco employees left work for the day after the incident.
