Chainsaw fury of magazine browser

`Staff at a Japanese convenience store got a shock when they asked an elderly gentleman to stop reading magazines without buying them, media reports say.

The man, 70, left the 7-Eleven store in the Ibaraki prefecture north-east of Tokyo – and returned with a chainsaw, police told AFP news agency.

After threatening to cut staff to pieces he left the chainsaw outside the shop and carried on reading.

“He was still reading when I called the police,” the manager told AFP.’
