Sisters Gourmet Deli, right in Monument Square, said in a Facebook post that they had a very frightening encounter with a man "clearly under the influence and likely battling mental health issues" on Saturday. Now they are calling on the city of Portland to step up and do something.

We love Sisters. We partner with them for many occasions, and their food, service and employees are amazing.

What they said about this incident speaks to a larger issue of the drug problem in Maine and particularly in Portland...

To everyone at Sisters: I am so sorry you had to go through this. I am glad that everyone is OK. I hope your message to Portland is heard, and please know that we are thinking of you.
