Man Unsheathes Sword At Xiamen North Station
A man with a history of mental illness was hanging around the train station on Monday carrying an elongated package when he rose the suspicions of an on duty police officer. The officer told the man to put the package through the security scanner but after realizing he had been caught, the man unsheathed the sword and threatened to kill anyone who came near him. The man then started to scream at the police officer and security, “Are you not afraid of me? You can’t control me! Can you fight me now?!” Security cleared the scene and police backup was called while the officer who first spotted the man attempted to calm him. When back-up arrived the same officer rushed in and grabbed the sword hilt. The man quickly gave up without a further struggle.
