LOWER TOWNSHIP, N.J., April 17 (UPI) -- A New Jersey man who walked into a deli in Lower Township and allegedly threatened workers with a samurai sword has been taken into custody.

 

The incident started when Ryan Crump walked into American Deli with his sword and demanded that store employees give back his cellphone.

 

"I thought we were going to get killed. He said he was going to slice all of us up," deli employee Lee DeBiase told NBC 40. "He told us he was going to jump across the counter and that we better find his cellphone fast."

 

When the cellphone didn’t appear, Crump brought out the sword.

 

"He took it out like he thought he was a samurai master. He started pointing it at everybody and swinging it around. He came pretty close to our faces and everything," said American employee Mike Houseman. "I thought he was going to cut my face open with it.”

 

"Another inch or so, Mike wouldn't have an eye or a nose," added deli worker David Valley.

 

Someone called 911 and Lower Township Police arrived on the scene. Crump was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault, terrorist threats and other weapons offenses.

 

Luckily no on was injured.

 

"When you look down at the blade of a samurai, your whole life changes," DeBiase said.

Man Finds Nearly 6.2 Carat Diamond in State Park

 

A man found a 6.19 carat diamond in Crater of Diamonds state park in Arkansas.

 

David Anderson was searching for diamonds when he came across a 6.19 carat diamond he has dubbed "The Limitless Diamond." Anderson moved to Murfreesboro just so he could constantly search for diamonds.

 

The park reports that it is the 15th largest diamond found at the park in the last four decades, and is about the size of a jelly bean.

 

Anderson says he plans to sell the diamond and donate the money he receives to charity.

MUMBAI, April 15 (UPI) -- In order to help clean up public defecation, Unicef India introduced a new mascot in the hope of persuading people not to go in public.

 

Mr. Poo made his debut in a “Poo Party” music video and has already gotten more than 100,000 people to pledge that they will call on their “Head of State to ensure that India rises to the challenge of ending open defecation.”

 

According to Unicef, more than 620 million people in India do not use a toilet and 28 million children have no toilet facilities at their school.

 

“That's half the population dumping over 65 million kilos of poo out there every day,” the Poo2Loo website reports. “If this poo continues to be let loose on us, there will be no escaping the stench of life threatening infections, diseases and epidemics.”
