An ex con has been arrested after allegedly threatening to 'slice' New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's top aide and calling her a murderer in chilling calls to her cell.  

Gary Goldstein, who calls himself a 'journalist and motivational speaker', is also said to have spent months sending vile Twitter abuse to Melissa DeRosa before making his sinister threats over the phone this weekend. 

The convicted robber, who was jailed for six years in the late 1990s, is said to have told DeRosa: 'Melissa DeRosa, you c***! I'm gonna slice your p**** you murderer, do you hear me?'

He was arrested on aggravated harassment charges over the weekend and is being held while awaiting arraignment, The New York Post reports. 

A source told the paper that DeRosa, 38, has called the situation 'a little bit unnerving'. She is said to be seeking an order of protection. 

DeRosa, 38, has been highly visible in recent months as part of Cuomo's coronavirus response team. She has joined the New York governor at his daily briefings regularly.

Goldstein, who claims to have worked at CBS, NBC and the Post on LinkedIn, is said to have lived in Brooklyn with his mother until she moved to a nursing home ten years ago.  

While Cuomo was praised by some in the early days of the pandemic for his calming briefings, he has also been criticized heavily for the high number of deaths at New York nursing homes.
