An eastern Iowa man is accused of assaulting his neighbor with a five-foot sword. It started with a call to cops Monday afternoon about an armed man in a Coralville apartment.
When police arrived, they say an alleged victim claimed to officers that 22-year-old Heath Wolfe had struck him in the stomach with a sword. Wolfe is charged with assault with use or display of a dangerous weapon.
Police say Wolfe allegedly came out of his apartment with the sword and pointed it at his neighbor following an argument over a TV show. Wolfe then is said to have jabbed his neighbor with the sword, causing bruising, although there was no stabbing. Wolfe was being held at the Johnson County Jail on Tuesday.
