When a worker reminded him he was not allowed to be there, police said the man began swinging a hockey stick over his head and then pointed it at the employee.

It’s unclear if the man brought the hockey stick into the business or if it was already there.

The suspect then ran away but was arrested after he returned to the same business a few hours later.
