Mormon bishop armed with samurai sword saves neighbor from mugger


The mugger will probably get to sue him.
Check it out:

With a neighbor in distress, one Utah man did what any concerned citizen would do.

“I threw on some clothes and grabbed my sword,” Kent Hendrix told the Salt Lake Tribune.

A Samurai-wielding Latter Day Saints bishop and others in Millcreek, Utah, came to the aid of a woman who was being attacked and chased by a former co-worker, authorities say.

Hendrix was in the shower at approximately 7 a.m. on Tuesday when his teenage son alerted him about a woman’s screams for help, ABC 4 in Utah reported. Hendrix, a fourth-degree black belt, put on some clothes – and grabbed the 29-inch steel samurai sword he has owned since he was 17.
