Man Charged In WalMart Hatchet Attack

Quincy, MA — Kenneth Rosen has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after allegedly threatening two men with a hatchet at a Quincy WalMart.

Quincy police Capt. John Dougan said Rosen became enraged when two men seated near him in the Subway restaurant inside the store asked him to turn down his radio Friday afternoon.

“He stood up and threw a tonic at them, then pulled out a hatchet with a foot-and-a-half long handle, waving and swinging it in the direction of their heads,” Dougan said.

And then, in what must have been an awe-inspiring show of complete badassery, Rosen reportedly slammed the hatchet down on the table where the men had been sitting, cutting a sandwich in half. “You want some of that?” he asked. I’m guessing their answer was no…

As Rosen was being escorted out by store security, police say he pulled out a folding knife and pointed it at them.

When an officer rolled up a short time later, Rosen was found walking down a nearby street with the hatchet holstered to his right hip. The officer drew his gun and the 54-year-old man surrendered without incident. Rosen is due back in court on March 4 for arraignment.
