Man arrested after standoff with Duluth Police at The Last Place on Earth on Superior Street.

The Last Place on Earth Owner Jim Carlson said the man who came in with a weapon had been there before.  He told WDIO that the man seemed,”mentally unstable.”

“He’s looked at our ninja supplies before and pulled out a sharp ninja star and cut himself in his hand until he was drawing blood and said look at how tough I am,” Carlson said. “So we knew from before he wasn’t all there.”

Duluth Police officer Mike Thamm told WDIO that the man demanded money. Three customers were in the store at the time.
