No comments
A neighborhood parking dispute in Somerset County turned bloody after a man pulled a sword from his car and began slashing at another man who was swinging a 4-foot contractor's level, authorities said.
The battle unfolded around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the area of Knopf Street and North 9th Avenue in Manville, according to the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office.
Jared Razzano, 35, the alleged swordsman, faces multiple charges including second-degree aggravated assault and was taken to the Somerset County jail.

The 40-year-old man on the other end of the fight suffered deep cuts to his head and arm, authorities said. In addition, he "also had one of his fingers nearly severed as a result of the assault," Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said in a statement.
The man was taken to an area trauma center in stable condition, Robertson said.
The 40-year-old was carrying a four-foot contractor's level when the verbal dispute over the parking space near Razzano's home turned physical, authorities said.
Razzano was struck multiple times with the level, "resulting in several bruises and abrasions to his back, face, arm and leg," Robertson said.
Razzano then removed a sword from his car and "retaliated by slashing the victim several times with the sword. The slashing caused the victim serious bodily injuries to his head and arm," Robertson said.
In addition to aggravated assault, Razzano faces charges of third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.
