The Battle Creek, Michigan authorities are looking into a rather unusual case. A deranged individual repeatedly stabbed a 35-year-old woman using a one-meter sword. The woman was rushed to the local hospital for emergency surgery, but the doctors are reserved regarding her chances of survival.
Sword Man Stabs Wife
According to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office, this is one of the most unusual cases the authorities had to handle in years. Not many details are known about what drove a man to stab the mother of his child with a sword.
On Friday morning, several law enforcement officers were dispatched to a Battle Creek house to what appeared to be a case of domestic violence. The caller told the 911 dispatcher that a man wielding a one-meter sword broke into the house and attacked a woman.
Shortly arriving at the scene of the crime, the authorities discovered a 35-year-old woman in critical condition. According to the police report, there was another person in the house, a 13-year-old girl.
The woman was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. After recovering, the woman told the investigators that it was her former husband who assaulted her.
Following a heated domestic dispute, the man took out a sword he had stashed in another area of the house and attacked her. The ER doctors said that the woman had multiple stab wounds and lost a lot of blood before the authorities arrived on the scene.
Sword Man Arrested
Later on, the law enforcement officers were combing the town, in search of the individual. According to the authorities, the man responsible was caught later that day and confessed to the deed. For the time being, the man’s identity will not be disclosed.
The 35-year-old woman wounded during the sword man’s attack is still in the hospital’s ICU.
