A sword-wielding attacker in California chopped off a man’s hand Sunday, police said.
The attack happened near a home in Riverside, 55 miles east of Los Angeles. Authorities received a call around 10:30 p.m. about a severed hand found on a sidewalk.
A short time later, they were notified about a man at a hospital who said his hand was cut off during a sword attack. The victim is a man in his 60s who underwent surgery and was expected to survive.
The victim and suspect are homeless and knew each other, police said.
“This assault may have stemmed from a recent and ongoing dispute both have been having with each other,” a Riverside police spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
Authorities said the incident is still under investigation.
