A short time later, a woman called 911 to report her grandson tried to cut her with a sword at a residence in the 13700 block of Fender Drive. Before police could arrive, a 40-year-old victim entered a nearby Dollar Tree store and told employees he was at a house when a man cut him with a sword.
Deputies called to the home in 13800 block of Fender Drive found a 24-year-old man holding the weapon. They believed he was responsible for the assault, and police took him into custody.
