A man walking through the downtown Stamford train station with an ax drew the attention of a lot of people, including the police.
According to Stamford Police Sgt. Robert Shawinsky, one of the department's officers working Homeland Security detail noticed the man around 6:20 p.m. Thursday.
Officer James Comstock stopped the unidentified Stamford man at the South State entrance to the station, Shawinsky said.
The man told Comstock he had borrowed the ax from a friend in Norwalk and that he was on his way on the train to return it to him.
After speaking with Comstock for a few minutes, the man realized the "error of his decision," Shawinsky said.
The officer then drove the ax to the man's home, while the man went on his way, said Shawinsky.
