Florida Man with Ninja Sword Angry Over Missing Socks
On Tuesday, the Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies were summoned to a Hudson home by an individual who declared that his roommate lost his temper and tried to kill him and another person inside the house.
Upon arriving at the location, the law enforcement officers identified a 53-year-old man with multiple injuries to his hands and a 43-year-old woman with a deep cut on her leg and bleeding profusely. The victims told the authorities that their roommate, 47-year-old Brandon McCray, attacked them inside the Hudson home with a ninja sword.
Frank Smith, the male victim, lost almost all of his fingers during the attack, while the woman, identified by the authorities as being McCray’s former girlfriend, sustained a severe leg injury.
According to the authorities, prior to the attack, McCray came into the living room and asked Smith and the woman about a pair of socks that was missing from his room. After both denied seeing the socks, McCray lost his temper and threatened to kill them if they refused to tell him about the socks.
Based on Smith’s testimony, McCray left the room and returned after a few minutes with a ninja sword he took from one of the bedrooms. Without warning, McCray assaulted both victims. After Smith contacted the authorities, McCray fled to one of their neighbors where he was later found.
McCray was charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
The victims were rushed to the Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point to receive medical attention for their injuries.
