PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Garden Home man was arrested after authorities say he attacked his landlord with a samurai sword.

KOIN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2eHU0ZL ) that the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received a call at about 7 p.m. Saturday about a disturbance involving a sword.

It was reported that Gregory Barsaloux had used a “samurai type” sword in an attempt to injure his landlord.

When deputies arrived, they found the landlord unharmed.

Authorities said they tried to speak with Barsaloux, but he armed himself with a rifle and started threatening deputies. Officials evacuated neighbors.

Other officers arrived and after three hours of attempted communication, Barsaloux surrendered.

Barsaloux was booked in jail and faces charges of first-degree attempted assault, unlawful use of a weapon and criminal mischief.
