On Friday, November 20 at 3:55 p.m., a man who has been identified as Hsu Chien produced and began swinging around a samurai sword inside the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Someone took the phrase “cutting in line” way too literally…
Sources differ on exactly what happened when Chien was cornered by security. Some say he was tackled, some say he held the sword up to his neck to threaten suicide, and yet another claims that he attempted seppuku (cutting his stomach open) with it.
