    Man has nose cut off in sword attack - KFOR

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City man has his nose cut off during a bizarre attack at a local bar. Police say the manager of a small bar near Northwest 10th and Rockwell attacked several customers with a sword. The suspect, Adan Zapata, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Police say Zapata thought the victim and his friends were making too much noise.

    Zapata supposedly got mad, grabbed the 34-inch sword, chased the men outside and slashed one man in the face.

    One witness thinks the victim is lucky to be alive.

    "He was scared. He cried, 'Oh my nose, he cut my nose,'" says Israel Ramos.

    "This individual was seriously injured. He was slashed on the shoulder, hand and on his face," said MSgt. Gary Knight.

    In addition to the assault charge, Zapata faces a lesser citation for destroying private property.

    And it should remain illegal to carry in a bar. While this was a bizarre attack I see no reason to ever mix alcohol and firearms.

    Well, the victim will own the bar before this is over. That won't matter to the previous owner because he's going to get a new address for about 10-15 years and won't be able to run the bar anyway.

    It's not really a good business policy to attack your patrons with a sword!

    I've been training in japanese sword for ten years now. This is always bad for us. We legit people who train in sword don't want to be on the radar. The last thing we need is regulation for our art.
