A girl in Japan was at a train station when she saw a man holding what appeared to be a large knife or saw in his hand. She didn’t know what to do, so she called the police. The Police showed up and arrested the man. When they searched him, he didn’t have a knife…it was a flip phone! The girl was so young that she didn’t know what a flip phone was, so she assumed because it flipped, it was a knife!

The man was let go and the young girl now knows what people used to call people in the past, before smart phones! We have more on this story and others in today’s Other News!
