A Salt Lake woman was arrested on attempted homicide charges after police said she tried to kill a man with a samurai sword.

Officers said 25-year-old Tasha Davis was arguing with a neighbor when things quickly escalated.

According to police, Davis went to her apartment and returned wielding a 27-inch samurai sword.

Police said Davis attacked the victim, repeatedly swinging the long blade at him.

The man blocked one of the swings with his arm, resulting in a large gash.

Davis' boyfriend grabbed her and held her until officers arrived, according to police.
