An Illinois man was seriously injured in a sword attack in Davenport. It happened outside a downtown Davenport bar. Police say 26-year-old Ricky Johnson Jr. of Chicago and 36-year-old Willie Terrell of Davenport got into an argument that led to a fight.
Terrell went to his car and brought out a sword after Johnson’s sister threw a cigarette lighter at him, hitting him in the head. Police say Terrell used the sword to inflict life-threatening wounds on Johnson. He was treated at a Davenport hospital before being airlifted to University Hospitals in Iowa City. Terrell is out on bond after being charged with willful injury resulting in serious injury.
