BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck man is in trouble with the law after he allegedly raised a hatchet toward a convenience store clerk who tried to stop him from stealing doughnuts. 

Brently Iron Road, 36, faces a charge of felony terrorizing and misdemeanor criminal trespass in connection with the incident on Friday, the Bismarck Tribune reported. 

According to a police affidavit, a clerk at the Simonson Station store confronted Iron Road after Iron Road allegedly put packaged doughnuts in his coat. 

Iron Road put the doughnuts back but became agitated. When the clerk told him to leave he pulled a hatchet from his waistband and raised it toward the worker. Iron Road left the store after the clerk told him again to leave. 

Police found the hatchet in a snowbank and viewed store video that shows Iron Road raise the hatchet to shoulder height and shaking it toward the clerk, according to the affidavit. 

Court documents didn't list an attorney for Iron Road.
