A video on a Bri­tish web­site al­legedly cap­tures a P.E.I. shop­keeper swing­ing a samu­rai sword at a flee­ing cus­tomer.

The video shows a per­son dressed in a grey hoodie wan­der into the shop. He then waits pa­tiently to catch the at­ten­tion of the man be­hind the counter be­fore start­ing to chat with him.

The con­ver­sa­tion quickly gets heated, with the cus­tomer mak­ing an­gry ges­tures at the other man be­fore rush­ing to­wards him.

The storekeeper then fum­bles be­hind his desk and pulls out a samu­rai sword which he wields at the man.

The ter­ri­fied man is then seen

run­ning out the shop with the sword-wield­ing shop­keeper on his heels.

The video was posted on LiveLeak.com, a UK-based video shar­ing web­site that lets users post and share videos.

The video had more than 54,000 views as of Fri­day.

The video poster is listed on the LiveLeak site as “un­knownSa­mu­rai” and as a new mem­ber of LiveLeak.

Af­ter The Guardian sent the video to the RCMP, Sum­mer­side Po­lice and Char­lot­te­town Po­lice, all re­ported to be un­aware of the in­ci­dent.

“I had our staff ex­am­ine the video and it doesn’t ap­pear to be a busi­ness in Sum­mer­side,’’ says Sum­mer­side Po­lice Chief Sin­clair Walker.

“Don’t rec­og­nize ei­ther in­di­vid­ual.’’
