Several Sanford city police officers subdued an angry man after an altercation at the Lowes Foods on Spring Lane Wednesday afternoon.
Sources inside the store said the man entered the store and was screaming a woman’s name around 3:30 p.m. When police responded, he reportedly took his shirt off and attacked the officers.
At one point, three uniformed officers and as many as three bystanders were holding the man face own on the ground as he screamed out that he would kill them. As many as six uniformed officers and one out of uniform officer were eventually on scene.
Later, he appeared calmer as he sat up, cuffed and silent, drinking water that officers provided him with. An ambulance had arrived by 4:10 p.m.
No bystanders appeared to have been injured.
Drugs are bad, m’kay?
