Bonney Lake police said two men were seriously injured today after fighting over a Samurai sword.

Officers were called about 1:20 p.m. to a home in the 9600 block of 208th Avenue East and found a man sitting outside his house covered in blood.

The other man was still inside and initially refused to come outside, though both men were eventually taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said one of the men pulled out a sword after “a property dispute.”

After both men suffered serious cuts on their bodies, the homeowner went across the street and asked a neighbor to call for help because he’d been attacked.

The investigation is ongoing.
