Man with samurai sword arrested at New Jersey deli

LOWER TOWNSHIP, N.J. - April 17, 2014

It happened at American Deli in Lower Township.

Worker Lee DeBiase tells WMGM-TV the man threatened to "slice us all up" if we didn't give him his cellphone back. The employees say none of them had seen or had the phone.

A co-worker ducked out back and called police as Mike Houseman said the man started swinging the sword around.

Police have charged 43-year-old Ryan Crump with aggravated assault, terrorist threats and other weapons offenses.

No one was injured.
