Light Saber Toys R Us
December 16, 2011 by staff
A 9-1-1 caller reported the attack at 9:50 p.m. Wednesday and said the man, David Allen Canterbury, was swinging the “Star Wars”-style weapons at customers inside the store at 1800 Jantzen Beach Center, said Portland police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson.
Though police initially reported Canterbury struck the customers with one lightsaber, Simpson said Thursday he had one saber in each hand.
While the caller was still on the phone, Canterbury walked out of the store — lightsabers in hand — toward the parking lot, police said.
Officers tried to arrest Canterbury, but he kept swinging the lightsabers at them, Simpson said. One officer tried to use his Taser but the device didn’t work.
Another officer used his Taser, but Canterbury knocked one of the wires away with a lightsaber.
Police eventually wrestled Canterbury to the ground and arrested him, Simpson said. He was taken to an area hospital for a mental evaluation. He faces allegations of disorderly conduct, theft, assault, resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer.
