FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Frederick police say a man attacked an acquaintance with a sword, hitting the victim in the hand.

The alleged assault occurred on Friday inside a home. Police say 31-year-old Shan Oney of Frederick was arguing with another man when he entered the man’s residence and confronted him with a sword.
