An Edina man went berserk at a Twin Cities Starbucks after he was asked to leave for looking at explicit photos of women.
The charges against Lim Bounhau, 56, of Lincoln Drive, state customers started to complain when they noticed him looking at pictures of younger women wearing only underwear while at the Starbucks in Apple Valley on Jan. 29.
When an employee asked him to put the pictures away, Bounhau allegedly became upset and began to yell. He was then asked to leave.
It was at this point he "lunged" at one of the Starbucks workers "in a threatening manner.
In the ensuing confrontation, during which two customers stepped in to help out, Bounhau grabbed some scissors from a table and said: "You don't want a knife in your stomach."
He then took a few steps forward, causing one of the men who intervened to back off, before leaving the coffee shop.
When outside, he continued to be confrontational and was heard to mention "something about a gun." He then grabbed something from inside his car door.
As bystanders continued to take photos of him, Bounhau left and was later picked up by police through the license plate of his car.
He's been charged with threats of violence, a felony, and 5th degree assault, a misdemeanor.
