Man arrested after threatening another with sword


DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA) — A man was arrested after he threatened another man with a sword.

The suspect then said, “Let’s see if you can endure the pain I did.” This comes after the two had gotten into a fight a few weeks ago. That fight ended with the suspect being sent to the hospital after being shoved by the victim.

No one was hurt in Wednesday’s altercation. The suspect was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
