    Woman Uses Sword To Fight Off Attacker

    POSTED: 7:12 am PDT August 1, 2007
    UPDATED: 8:04 am PDT August 1, 2007

    Diana Olson said she woke up in her home on Southeast Taggart Street early Thursday morning to find a man unbuttoning her pants.

    “I just started screaming and he held me down with one hand and was hitting me in the head with the other,” said Olson. “He just kept telling me to quit talking and quit yelling.”

    Olson said she managed to get the man off her and the two struggled in the hallway, where Olson grabbed a sward off the wall.

    According to Olson, she swung the sword at the man as hard as she could, hitting him in the head or the arm.

    Olson said the man fled from the house and she called 911. She was taken to the hospital, where employees called her husband, Arthur.

    “They said that there was a home invasion and that your wife was beat up,” said Arthur Olson.

    Arthur, who was out of town on business, rushed back to be with his wife.

    “The sword was laying in the entryway still and I could see where she gouged the closet an eighth of an inch deep by swinging,” said Arthur.

    Police took samples of blood found at the house, which they said could be from the attacker.

    Anyone with information one the case is urged to contact Portland police.

    Make sure its sharpend, preferably its a real sword not a cheap knockoff. I'm pretty sure if I took a full swing at someones arm with my samurai sword besides blood the cops would be able to take finger prints :o

    Those style sabre's are not designed to be sharp, they're for slashing with a lot of force. Not round edged but not sharp exactly. The general opinion that riding on a horse with something razor sharp might be more of a danger.... Also, in use, the blade would be destroyed if sharp and clashing with a few others where if it is slightly blunt, you can still do an effective job on flesh but withouth messing it up on guard.

    Anyway, back on subject, that's just plain hardcore! I hope they track him down with a big chunk of shoulder missing or something!

    And 1/8" may not be so bad, we don't know how much of him she cut through before hitting the door (assuming same slash and hit both)

    Remember ladies,
    it's pokey-pokey not slashy-slashy.
    Run him through and then you can stab him in the junk
