Sword Fight Ensues After South Carolina Break-In

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C —
A man toting a 3-foot sword apparently met his match when he broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment: The woman's roommate grabbed a sword of his own and sliced the intruder, police said.
The roommate, a sword collector, fended off the ex-boyfriend, who was cut on the arm, police said.
Elvis Javier Polanco, 18, was treated at a hospital and charged with burglary and aggravated assault, Beaufort County sheriff's Capt. Toby McSwain said. He said Polanco broke a window and climbed on his friend's shoulders to get into the apartment.
The roommate, Louis Delgado Hernandez, disarmed the intruder while the woman called police, McSwain said.
Sounds like matching force with force to me. Nice slice !!

Like the roommate was...

If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.
Zorro strikes again. what o great finish.
reminds me of something my dad said: "in this house, he who lives by the sword, will get shot."
If you break into my home and you have a handgun, you don't want to miss. I have swords in every room within reach. You miss you lose the hand and who knows what else. But then I may just pull my gun and shoot you, I always have lots of defence options.
Being a HIGHLANDER fanatic....I kinda always wanted to confront the intruder with Duncan's sword in hand with the popular refrain.....~cue the accent~ I AM DUNCAN MACLEOD of the CLAN MACLEOD...and....THERE....CAN....BE....ONLY....ONE !
