Customer pulls ‘gun’ on cashier to make her slice his lemons


An impatient customer pulled a gun on a woman, just so she’d slice his lemons.

The incident, which was captured on CCTV, happened in a store in Belarus, Eastern Europe.

The 31-year-old man, whose name hasn’t been released, bought two lemons at the shop. He initially left but then apparently decided he wanted them sliced.

He returned to the till to ask the cashier to slice them for him but became frustrated when she told him she was serving other customers.

Suddenly the man pulled a pistol from his jacket pocket, pointed the weapon straight at the woman and appeared to repeat his request before quickly putting the pistol back in his pocket.

The sales assistant didn’t appear to be intimidated by the weapon and continued serving customers before calling the cops.

When police arrived on the scene to arrest the man he was reportedly still waiting for the lemons to be sliced.

Cops said the man was drunk and that the weapon was actually an air pistol.

But the man still faces serious charges – about three to 10 years behind bars if he’s convicted of hooliganism and threatening to use a weapon.

He’s currently under house arrest while the police investigation into the incident continues.
