Don’t throw your samurai blade into the trash.
This report is from Broward County police, Florida after one man was taken into custody in connection to a strange junk conflict.
Curtis Miller (54), was taken into custody Monday. He was charged with attempted second-degree murder in connection to an incident that occurred on July 15. Todd Beevers was running when he noticed the suspect browsing large quantities of trash. The suspect was found in the vicinity of Auckland Park. The suspect requested a wheelbarrow, which was taken by the beavers. They began to argue and the two men exchanged words. “The two men exchanged words but the runner took the cart and ran after it, pushing it home,” police stated in a statement. The suspect soon caught up to Bobrov near Bobrov’s house. Home security cameras captured the meeting.
The footage shows Beavers at the driveway’s edge, holding a wheelbarrow and talking on the phone. He sees the suspect walking towards him, and he steps onto the sidewalk.
As soon as the suspect enters the frame, he can be seen drawing his Katana Samurai sword. After taking several steps, he raises his sword behind him and strikes the victim with a powerful blow.
Two men fight for a wheelbarrow in the video. Although the suspect swings his sword many times, he does not appear to be able to strike the Bobrov.
“When he pulled out the sword, I thought …” Was he really going to do this?” WSVN was informed by Beevers in August. After a brief struggle, the suspect releases the wheelbarrow from his grasp and runs away. You can see the victim pointing at a security camera, which has just captured the whole meeting.
The video ends with a woman pulling her cart.
Bobrov was not hurt in the attack.
The video was posted by police in August to try and identify the woman and man holding the sword.
Later, the woman claimed to be the owner of the property that contained a heap of rubbish. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the suspect is currently being held on unrelated charges without bail.
Beevers stated that he regrets grabbing the cart because he didn’t know it would lead him to an intense argument.
He said, “I don’t even need it.” “I felt really stupid about it.”
