Bishop uses samurai sword to stop attack

MILCREEK, Utah — A bishop of a Mormon church in Utah helped stopped an apparent mugging with a samurai sword.

He heard his neighbor screaming and immediately grabbed his sword.

He ran out into the street and scared the suspect off just from the sight of the sword.

"When he saw the sword he said, 'I'm leaving, I'm leaving’ and took off running," said Bishop Kent Hendrix.

The modern-day samurai's appearance scared the suspect enough that he turned himself into the police just a few hours later.
