MONTGOMERY, Ohio (AP) Police in suburban Cincinnati are investigating why a hospital patient had a bag full of guns and other weapons.

Montgomery police have released little information on what happened on Oct. 10, when they responded to a report of a patient threatening Bethesda North Hospital workers with a gun. No injuries were reported.

Officers seized one .38-caliber pistol, two .22-caliber pistols, ammo, bear-deterrent spray, a gun holster and belt, scissors, nail clippers and a copy of American Rifleman magazine, according to a police report. Police said they are consulting with the Hamilton County prosecutor's office about charges. They declined Tuesday to discuss any other details, saying they didn't want to jeopardize their investigation.

The patient remained hospitalized Tuesday. The patient's name hadn't been released, and no other information was available.

A spokesman for hospital-owner TriHealth said privacy laws prevented him from discussing the patient.

"It was a very unfortunate incident and luckily no one was injured," spokesman Joe Kelley said Tuesday, adding that the TriHealth system considers the safety of patients, staff and visitors "paramount."
