(AP) – A Southern California woman has told police officers a sword-wielding relative lunged at her with the 5-foot blade.

Seal Beach police say 21-year-old Andrew Baoan Nguyen was arrested Tuesday night by Orange County sheriff’s deputies.

He was booked for investigation of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of cocaine and being under the influence of cocaine.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram says the victim flagged down police officers in a Seal Beach neighborhood and told them Nguyen raised a 5-foot sword and lunged at her.

The reason for the attack hasn’t been disclosed and there are no details about the victim’s relationship to Nguyen.
