Sword-Wielding Man Causes Panic at New York City Apple Store

Nov 21, 2015

A man swinging a large sword appeared at Apple's flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan Friday, terrifying shoppers.

Video showed the man, 30-year-old Hsu Chien, waving the weapon on the store's spiral glass staircase, NBC New York reports. No injuries were reported, and police eventually tackled Chien, who was then taken to a hospital for evaluation.

"I have never in my life felt so terrified," Nancy Birnbaum, who was at the store's Genius Bar, told the network. "He pulled his sword out and everybody got back. I honestly thought that was it."
