A New London woman, Juanita Bently, 51, was arrested and held on $10,000 bail by the New London Police Department after she attacked her house guest with a samurai sword, reports Masslive.
The police picked up the woman after police were called by neighbors. Bentley had apparently been entertaining a guest in her home and apparently relations went sour. Bentley requested her house guest leave her home. He did not. Bentley then went into a room and retrieved a samurai sword.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for lacerations to the back and arms.
Bentley was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of peace, and ordered held in lieu of $10,000 cash bail pending a Monday arraignment.
