Bainbridge Police Disarm Sword-Brandishing, Knife-Throwing Man
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND —
A shirtless man thrashing a large sword and armed with throwing knives gave himself up outside a lumber-supply store without incident Tuesday afternoon.
The man, 35, was covered with scrapes and cuts and had been waving the sword aggressively and stabbing objects in the parking lot of the Pro Build building-supply store near Highway 305 and High School Road around 1:45 p.m.
An off-duty Bainbridge Island police officer approached the oddly behaving man and told him to lay down his sword, knives and other sharp objects he was carrying.
The agitated man complied.
He then told the off-duty officer and other officers who’d gathered there he was “hunting werewolves and C.H.U.D.s” who can disguise themselves as humans. He said he was afraid of getting hurt.
Police took the man to Harrison Medical Center for evaluation.
Employees of a nearby Ace Hardware store said the man had approached customers there, displaying and demonstrating his sword and throwing his knives, according to a police report.
