Summer’s here. Two men were seen dueling at an apartment complex in the Bronx this morning.
New York Post writer Wilson Dizard wrote an eyewitness account of the action. Apparently, a man armed with a metal rod decided to bring some drama and drop off some pain at someone’s doorstep. To his surprise though, he was greeted with a sword blade. Battle commenced.
Per NY Post:
The broad-daylight drama started at about 11 a.m. at 1275 Edward L. Grant Highway in Highbridge when a man with an iron bar and no shirt came knocking.
It’s not clear why he was there, as there was no police report made of the brief encounter.
But the bar-wielding aggressor was greeted at the door by a rude surprise: a man gripping what looked like a small samurai-style sword.
The shirtless man was not deterred, crouching into a defensive position as he waved his crude club.
The sword-carrying man, meanwhile, used the door like a shield as both combatants swung at each other during the fight, which lasted about 15 minutes.
It wasn’t clear to witnesses what the fight was about, but the shirtless man scampered off after he was cut on the arm. Witnesses said he vowed to return.
Neither man seemed to be seriously hurt.
What kind of comic book madness is this? Swordfighting? Wounded men scampering away to heal? Vows of vengeance?
To paraphrase the the illustrious Harlem poet Cameron Giles better known as Cam’Ron, “it’s going to be a hot f*cking summer” for somebody. Stay safe out there folks.
