MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) — A New Hampshire man apparently did not take kindly to a neighbor’s request for him to turn down his music. Manchester police said a 47-year-old grabbed a sword and chased the man who knocked on his door Monday evening.
Police responded to Elm Street at about 5:15 p.m. for a report of the sword threat. They say Benjamin Layland chased his neighbor with the 2-and-a-half-foot sword but he got away and there were no injuries.READ MORE: Winchester Woman Among 3 Hurt In Head-On NH Crash
