A Hamilton man is in police custody after allegedly waving around a sword outside a 7-11.
Police were called to the variety story on Main Street East early Saturday morning after receiving a report that a man was threatening to harm someone.
Police say they found the man outside the store and were able to seize a large, samurai-style sword from him.
The 29-year-old was arrested without incident and no one was hurt.
Andrew Ribson is charged with possession of a dangerous weapon and has been held without bail.
