A MAN al­legedly used a sa­mu­rai sword to at­tack an­other man in the Tweed.

Po­lice said a 46-year-old man was drink­ing al­co­hol with two other men at an ad­dress in Kennedy Drive, Tweed Heads, on Satur­day night.

The man left the house and a short time later the two other men heard a noise and went out­side.

The 46-year-old was hold­ing a large sa­mu­rai-style sword and struck one of the other two at least once in the right shoul­der, po­lice said.

A wit­ness was able to take the sword off the man, who left be­fore po­lice ar­rived.
