TOKYO (TR) – “All we need is just a little patience,” — Guns NRoses, “Patience.”

Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 30-year-old male customer at a noodle shop in Minato Ward who allegedly threatened an employee after claiming he had to wait for his order, reports TBS News (Sept. 1).

On August 30, Kotaro Nagahisa allegedly intimidated the employee of the shop, which serves ramen noodles, by asking “How much longer must I wait?” He then threatened, “I don’t know what will happen next.”

Nagahisa, who is employed at a restaurant, denies the allegations. “What kind of wording means intimidation?” the suspect is quoted by the Takanawa Police Station.

According to police, Nagahisa placed the order and immediately began directing the alleged threats at the employee.
