A father in St. Louis Park faces a felony charge for allegedly confronting children with an assault weapon, because he thought they took candy from his children on Halloween.

Police say 44-year-old Orrin Hager is accused of pulling out an AK-47 on a group of boys he saw walking, and confronting them about the candy.

According to the complaint, Hager told police he pulled out the gun because the boys weren't taking him seriously.

The gun was not loaded. No one was hurt.
