NYC man busted for making threats against upstate fruit festival

An unhinged Brooklyn man made a series of death threats against an upstate fruit festival – ranting about a “Jewish meet up” and threatening to “do a f–king Ted Bundy” to an unnamed woman in the tirades, federal prosecutors alleged Tuesday.

William Swift, of Brownsville, was charged in Brooklyn federal court with menacing organizers and attendees of the Woodstock Fruit Festival, including in emails and audio recordings, beginning in February of this year, according to a complaint against him.

The messages included threats of orchestrating a mass shooting and stabbing people associated with the festival, a yearly health and wellness event in Diamond Point scheduled for later this month, according to the court documents.

“The ideal thing would be to go up to Woodstock to shoot up…the Jewish meet up. That would be ideal,” he allegedly said in one of the disturbing missives.

Swift allegedly made sinister threats against an unnamed woman who helps organize the event, invoking serial killer Ted Bundy in an audio recording sent to her, according to the feds.

“I’m sorry to say this but I can’t stop fantasizing about doing very, very, very bad things to you, I don’t have a plan I just fantasize about doing very, very bad things to you….,” the sicko allegedly said on the recording.

He added that he fantasized about doing a “f–king Ted Bundy” to her unless she shut down the festival, which bills itself as “a celebration of health, fruit-based diet and personal growth” and as “the world’s largest, all-inclusive, raw vegan health retreat.”

In May, the nut job allegedly threatened to kill someone associated with the event if he ever saw them in New York City.

“[H]ey piece of s–t b–ch, I want to make something clear, WFF is over. [John
Doe-1’s] retreats are over whether you like it or not. [I]f I see you, you will regret coming to
NYC, and you will feel my pain,” he wrote in an email, according to the complaint.

Attorney information for Swift was not immediately available. Reps for the fruit festival did not immediately respond.

It was unclear if Swift has a connection to the event or its organizers.

The retreat hosts a number of activities for adults, including evening camp fires, yoga and “mud parties,” where participants lather themselves with sludge, according to its website.
