The man also assaulted customers and damaged property, police said. No one was injured.
Police say Noel Christopher Monnelly, 62, is charged with two counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of uttering threats, three counts of causing a disturbance and one count of mischief.
He is due in court at a later date.
